Web Map Service (WMS)


The WMS tool allows users to interactively visualize Earth science data and model forecasts using any web browser. The visualizations can also be used in other applications such as Google Earth. SIVO has established Web Map Services for MAP05, MAP06, and other projects.


The WMS tool comprises two parts: a Server that actually makes the images, and a web-based Viewer that sends requests to the Server.



Sample image showing precipitation from the GEOS-5 model run on 2006-10-31 for MAP 06. Images like this one can easily be generated using the MAP 06 WMS Viewer.
