An online map viewing application

WMS Viewer on line is a light-weighted client for web map services that use the WMS protocol. It is a web application compatible with all modern versions of WMS and also supports the projection of kml files as overlays in the chosen WMS connections.
It is a follow up of my Android application and I like especially the fact that you can simply open it in a browser and just work with it. Most of the WMS viewers are heavy applications that require to be downloaded installed etc.
Here are a few of the many sites that you  can find and provide WMS maps.
