    MapThat V4 was released in Autumn 2019 and now has an update which allows you to view the Legends for your Web Map Service (WMS) layers.

    So whether you are maximising your use of Open Source Geospatial tools such as GeoServer to publish complex spatial datasets or you are accessing external Web Map Services from the Environment Agency, Historic England, BGS etc, you can now render their Legends next to the layer in MapThat.
