The main idea is to offer a web GIS displaying current GEONETCast satellite imagery as a WMS. An important function is the possibility to add external WMSs. Our group will also generate and set up the GEONETCast-WMS. As a showcase we display the results of the "Fire Web Service"-group.
WMS or only appropriate data to create a WMS
There are three outputs:
- GEONETCast-WMS in case another group wants us to set it up for them; several formats, e. g. png, tiff, jpeg, gif
- running GeoServer system to be used by other groups
- web GIS based on Mapbender
The GEONETCast-WMS can be accessed independently of the web GIS. The web GIS will offer common functionality such as zooming and panning. In addition, an external WMS can be loaded into the web GIS.
