Defining a WMS/WCS/WFS as a Data Source
The Web Map Service, Web Coverage Service or Web Feature
is used to
define a W*S as a data source, making its content available.
Project > Add Layer > From Data
Source... > WMS / WCS / WFS >
Tools > Data Source Explorer...
> WMS / WCS / WFS
To define W*S service as a data source, fill the Service Address
URL and Username
parameters if necessary.
As a example, the connection parameters to access a
WMS of TerraAmazon are:
- Service Address =
- Data Source Title = wms_terraamazon
- Data Source Description = Just
an example of how to define a wms (optional)
- Username =
- Password =
- Press Open to
make this connection available at Data
Source Selector with the same title specified
- Press Test to check the parameters used
to establish the connection.
NOTE: when you add layers from WCS, its content will be transfered to a local directory as soon as it is used.
In windows look at C:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\INPE\TerraView-5.y.z\wcs.
