LandVoyage is pleased to announce the release of the new FetchConnect™ WMS technology. FetchConnect™ WMS will allow all of the LandVoyage maps and imagery to be accessed by any WMS compatible software from providers such as ESRI, AutoCAD and more.
FetchConnect™ WMS technology is compliant with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Map Service (WMS) standards. This allows users to easily connect to the LandVoyage data library through any WMS compliant software using a simple username and password. User can then bring geo-referenced maps and imagery from LandVoyage directly into existing mapping projects.
FetchConnect™ WMS is compatible with ESRI ArcView (3.x, 8.x and 9), MapInfo Professional, AutoCAD (Map and Map 3D), Intergraph GeoMedia and any other WMS enabled software. These applications typically require no extra downloads to use with FetchConnect™ WMS. Software extensions may be needed to enable some applications to become WMS compatible.
"Our customers can now leverage the synergy of connecting LandVoyage maps and imagery with other mapping software," said Brian Randy Funk, Project Director of LandVoyage. "This connection is made possible through the power of FetchConnect™ WMS."
