The WMS GetCapabilities response gives as available GetMap formats:


configured through "WMS_GETMAP_FORMATLIST" "image/png,image/jpeg,image/tiff,application/x-pdf,image/svg+xml"

but the GetMetadata response for a layer in the WMS service offers format=image/gif& like:,29.620170,3.697400,34.882710

@nmtoken thanks for the report. AFAIK image/png and image/jpeg are required by MapServer. Any objection to reducing to just those then (for WMS) to keep things straightforward?

@tomkralidis if they are mandated image formats, then I'm happy with that. I wasn't after reporting all the available formats, just a one from the available would be fine.
