Archived - Web Map Services

A Web Map Service is a standard protocol for serving georeferenced map images over the Internet that are generated by a map server using data from a GIS database.

Ecosystem Management Branch (EMB) supports open access to branch georeferenced map information through the publication of connection links to EMB web map services. Two types of web services are available:

  • ESRI ArcGIS Server (v10) web map services, and,
  • industry standard OGC WMS web map services.

A viewer such as ESRI ArcMap / ArcView / ArcExplorer Web, Google Earth or GAIA is necessary to connect to and display the georeferenced map information published through EMB web map services. Use the URL’s below to connect your viewer to a map service.
