WMS Server

SonarScope permits to directly download images from a WMS (World Map Server) cartographic data server. Parameters input form for a request to the NASA WMS server, the information layer required is "strmplus" which represents the topography data acquired by the synthetic aperture radar of the space shuttle. Since the parameters input is quite fastidious, SonarScope proposes a server list and pre-fills the grid fields, geographic terminals are implicitly regulated to those of the image under display.

There are many cartographic data servers ; this is an example from the NASA catalogue.
