This may be a poorly worded question, because I am not sure of the exact terminology, but I'll give it a shot.
I have imported a vector layer from a WMS server into QGIS. I am able to query the objects on this layer with the Identify tool and get (most of the time) information about that object.
I have another (local) layer of points that I've created. I would like to automate that query process such that a new attribute is created in the point layer from a query to the WMS at that point.
I can't find any information on this, but if the data is made available to the Identify tool my logic tells me that this should be possible. I think I am lacking the appropriate search terms. Any help is appreciated.
