WMS:Where Can I Get Data?

From XMS Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The following external pages contain geospatial data (DEM, land use, soils, images, and other data useful for hydrologic modeling) that can be imported into WMS. Please note that some files are supported natively, while other file formats use the import wizard to reconfigure the data files into something usable in WMS. Be sure to download files in a format that can be used in one of these two ways.

Within WMS

Some data can be imported directly from within WMS using the Get Data WMS GetDataToolIcon.svg, Get Data From Map WMS GetDataFromMapIcon.svg, and Get Online Maps Add Online Maps Icon.svg tools.

External Sources

There are many external sources for geospatial data from around the world. The following is a non-exhaustive list of some of the more commonly used sources. While we have information in the Cost column, these services are subject to change at any time and without notice, so review the information on each site to determine if there is a cost involved. Additionally, sites may go down or cease operations without notice.
