Web Map Service

ISRIC GeoServer

Objective:

The ISRIC - World Soil Information WEB MAPPING SERVICE (WMS) provides OGC conforming maps for different layers. It allows users to visualize and perform GIS operations on datasets hosted at the World Data Center (WDC) for Soils. Data retrieved by the WMS service can not be edited; however, in the future WFS or WCS will be enabled. For visualisation please refer to our Onesoil Mapviewer

 

Implementation:

We use geoserver as our WMS, based on a Linux machine. For speed-up we heavily rely on geowebcache as our cache creating engine.
