I have a subscription to Nearmap that provides me with WMS Server link to their images. I would like to perform image classification using this imagery however I can't work out how to use the WMS feed for classification in ArcGiS (v10.3.1) short of exporting a series of maps as a raster.

I've tried Arc's "make image server layer" tool however I can't seem to select an image service layer. I get to the point in the attached image and can't select anything.

Does anyone know how I do this?

can't select image service layer

  • Can you use the WMS to download a layer image then work on that image as a standalone data source?

The Make Image Server Layer tool:

Creates a temporary raster layer from an image service. The layer that is created will not persist after the session ends unless the document is saved.

but it sounds like you have a WMS and not an image service so I think you should try the help for Adding WMS services instead because it describes how:

WMS server content can be used in ArcMap (as well as ArcGlobe) as map layers.
