OGC Webservices

Web services are ideal to make data available for integration with third party viewing, processing and data analyzing tools. The Web Mapping Services (WMS) and Web Feature Services (WFS) standards developed by the Open Gis Consortium (OGC) are far the most used standards to exchange map visualisations and geographic data.   

Web Mapping Services  

GeolinQ offers functionality to configure Web Mapping Services (WMS) to exchange map visualisations. WMS layers in GeolinQ are configured as a dynamic dataset selection of datasets from one or more data models. All datasets, including new datasets and updated datasets that meet the selection criteria are automatically published by the WMS. This guarantees that the WMS always serves the most recent data. Per dataset one of more styles can be selected. Each style is published as a separate WMS layer. WMS services can be configured for all types of geographic data and are generally used to integrate with map viewers.    

Web Feature Services

GeolinQ offers functionality to configure Web Feature Services (WFS) to exchange geographic data. WFS features in GeolinQ are configured as a dynamic data selections of datasets from one or more data models. All datasets, including new datasets and updated datasets that meet the selection criteria are automatically published by the WFS. This guarantees that the WFS always serves the most recent data. WFS services are generally used to integrate with processing tools and GIS analyzing tools like ArcGIS and QGIS.
