ArcGIS

To Access K-GIS Spatial Layer published as map service :
GIS services are automated geographic information services that are published and accessed over the Internet using standard technologies and protocols. It gives you the opportunity to add external spatial information to your GIS-project. One important GIS server which you could use as a background source for your GIS-project as Web Map Services (WMS). We will add a Web Map Service to the ArcGIS.

  1. Open ArcGIS window as shown in figure
  2. Open the ArcCatalog window and click on GIS Servers -> Add WMSServer as shown in the figure
  3. After click on the next button in the wizard. User has to enter the KGIS service in Service URL text box and click on Finish as shown in the figure
  4. Once the wizard is completed the user can view the list of layers and can add as layer and superimpose on the existing layer as shown in the figure
Q-GIS

Add external GIS server (WMS) :

  1. You can find the WMS Manager in the upper menu bar of the QGIS Browser. When you open the WMS manager, a window called: Add Layer(s) from a WM(T)S Server will appear
  2. We want to add a web map service with the information. Therefor we search for WMS services with the keyword. First we have to open the Sever Search Tab. If we search for this keyword, a list of possible WMS services will appear in the window.
  3. Please Add the user defined Project Name and add the WMS Layer as shown in figure
  4. Click on Add Layer and user can view the selected layer as shown in figure

The Software developer can embedd these web service URL's in their web application by including the JavaScript (.js) file.
Attached "Map.txt" Map.txt file can be renamed as "Map.js" and can be used in the solution explorer file of developed application.
