Web Map Tiling Service


The Web Map Tiling Service (WMTS) allows software clients to reference map images over the Internet or a private intranet. The WMTS implementation is based on the WMTS 1.0.0 OGC specification. Using HTTP GET requests, the WMTS provides georeferenced data to a client that displays this data as an image. Georeferenced data is information associated with maps that describe the real world extents of specific features and the projection upon which it is based.

The Web Map Tiling Service is an OGC-compliant web service.
