Accessing CUGIR WMS (Web Map Services) using QGIS

QGIS is a free and open source Geospatial Information System offering a number of enhanced capabilities, such as the ability to import and display various web services, including WMS layers. You can add a CUGIR WMS layer to a map in QGIS a number of ways, highlighted by the red arrows to the left (using QGIS 2.18.9 Desktop application).

NOTE: Though each data description page provides a Web Services link within its respective Tools menu, the URL for accessing those is the same for all CUGIR WMS layers. After creating a new connection in QGIS you will need to select the layer you wish to import/display on your map from the Browser Panel.
