Lovion WMS SERVER WMS Web Services
Providing Data via OGC-conform WMS Web Services
Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)
Geographic information systems are relevant for a number of company tasks. Due to the growing importance, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is responsible for standardising interfaces for location-based data since 1994. Lovion OGC SERVICES are based on a platform certified by the Open Geospatial Consortium to ensure the best possible interoperability using standardised interfaces. Open web-based standards (OpenGIS Web Services-OWS) form the backbone of the company's geodata infrastructure. Essential standards are Web Map Services (WMS) for providing maps as well as Web Feature Services (WFS) for accessing attribute data.
Web Map Service (WMS)
A Web Map Service (WMS) is a standardised interface for retrieving maps via the intranet or internet. Lovion OGC SERVICES provide WMS with layer-based maps from Lovion in a raster format so that other systems can access this data via the internet. The WMS specification for Lovion WMS offers metadata about map visualizations, especially about available map layers and their coordinate system. As an extension of WMS, Lovion also has the option of managing map layers in tiles and to cache these. This is known as a Web Map Tile Service (WMTS).
