I am trying to add a WMS group layer to ArcMap, without having the sublayers being listed in the TOC.
I will give a little background here: We are sourcing images from Nearmap.com, and their WMS data is served as follows:
As per Nearmap, the group layer link (Adelaide or Perth shown above) always points to the most recent image avaible, while the sub-layers present date specific images (one of them would of course be the latest one).
If this is true, it releives us from updating and re-publishing our maps every time a new image is available from Nearmap (which happens at least once a month).
When I try to add the group layer in Arcmap, it adds all the sub-layers along with it, and I have to choose a specific date image to publish in our web maps.
Does anyone here has experienced the same behaviour in other GIS software, open-source or otherwise?
I was informed by the Nearmap guys that "other" open source software have the "ability" to add group layer directly...any takers for that?
