Datasets Available as OGC Mapping Services

DGS offers many of our data products as web services in WMS (Web Map Server) and WFS (Web Feature Service) format. WMS and WFS are standardized, open protocols for requesting geospatial data over the web. (Read about the specifications for WMS and WFS services.) WMS services can be read in any web browser or directly in most GIS packages, such as ArcGIS and Quantum GIS. WFS services are typically more restricted to GIS software as they require more flexibility to manipulate the data.

For WMS and WFS services served by DGS:

  • WMS services support GetMap, GetCapabilities, and GetFeatureInfo requests.
  • WFS suports the GetFeature request.
  • Available WMS image formats are jpeg and png
  • Supported coordinate systems are EPSG:26957 (DE State Plane meters), EPSG:4326 (WGS84), EPSG:26918 (UTM Zone 18 meters), EPSG:4269, EPSG:4152, EPSG:2776, EPSG:3857, EPSG:900913
