Hi all. I have added a WMS to see a picture of my country Costa Rica, however when I see these images appear slightly sharper, the same WMS service it opened in gvSIG, there I have the option to open format jpg instead of png, as I deployed Global Mapper. And with the jpg format, if the images are excellent, as I can habiitar option in Global Mapper, so that and show me the pictures of the WMS in jpg and not png?

Thanks in advance for the help

    When setting up the WMS source you can set the server name such that you force the image format. To set the image format to JPG, set the server name to 'WMS&format=image/jpeg'.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
