Abstract
As a consequence of consensus and experimentation processes, OGC has defined several versions of the WMS. The INSPIRE Directive is working on a set of implementation rules designed to harmonise the types of data and to standardise the services providing them, among other purposes. In order for users to be able to continuously (concurrently) exploit WMS offered at the different SDI hierarchical levels, a facilitator service is needed making the use of multiple service URLs, layers, CRS, etc. transparent. This facilitator service should integrate the cascade responses to a series of remote WMS in the form of a layer group, exploiting the possibility foreseen by the standard. This document presents the research work carried out to develop a facilitator WMS integrating horizontally and vertically the layers of lower geographic hierarchy provided by the WMS, obtaining as a result one single seamless layer. One of the most salient contributions is the capability of restricting the response of a remote WMS in the merging process by means of a polygon, thus avoiding the overlap of information or the lack of transparency of the responses
