> Hi osgeo!
> I am pleased to announce the availability of a new service
> for the distribution of Earth science remote sensing imagery
> -- NASA Earth Observations Web Map Service (NEO WMS). This
> Web Map Service is built upon the NEO collection at
> http://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ and will hopefully facilitate
> the use of this type of imagery by a wider community.
> Most of the imagery in NEO is stored at 0.1 degree resolution
> (3600x1800) but some is only at 0.25 (1440x720) and these
> resolutions are completely dependent upon what the sensors
> can collect and what our data partners can produce for us. In
> time some of the datasets may be available at up to 1km
> resolution, but that is still far on the horizon.
> The NEO WMS understands WMS versions 1.1.1 and 1.3.0. The
> capabilities documents for these are at the following urls:
> This is the initial release of the WMS and it may be considered beta.
> Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any suggestions.
> I am still in the process of flushing out some of the
> ancillary metadata to appear in the capabilities documents
> but the layers should function as described by the WMS specs.
> Lastly, if you find the collection useful, please let me know
> how you are using it.
Thanks for the info, and this valuable resource. And BEATIFUL job on
actually encoding WMS Capabilities Layer/MetadataURL with actual FGDC
documents -- a dream for standards-based portals!
