Using GIS Tools

The OneAtlas Basemap streaming services follows rigorously the standards of the protocols it is compatible with. Consequently, the integration of our endpoints in the GIS tools is straight forward.

Prerequisites: If you haven’t already, see our Authentication Guide for information on how to acquire an API_key to access to our endpoints. Be aware that the credentials provided with the API_key are enough to access the basemap through GIS Tools.

Below is summarized the GIS tools compatibility with the protocols available in OneAtlas Basemap.

QGIS

You can easily access to the OneAtlas data imagery with OSGeo's QGIS Desktop application. QGIS is an Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) licensed under the GNU General Public License. QGIS currently can act as a WMS and WMTS client.

Prerequisites

If your network is protected by a proxy you first need to enter the relevant settings. From the “Preferences” menu, click on “Options” and then on “Network” to set the proxy settings.

WMS/WMTS Streaming in QGIS

The procedure to follow is documented directly on the QGIS website.


You will need to provide:

  • The WMTS or WMS endpoint (see Search results)
  • Credentials to be authorized to display the basemap (see Authenticate Guide)

The resulting dialog box filled out for WMS basemap streaming should look like:

QGISnewWMS.jpg

The resulting dialog box filled out for WMTS basemap streaming should look like:

QGISnewWMTS.jpg

If you have entered the correct details, this should be the result in QGIS:

WFS Access in QGIS

In the menu select “Add WFS Layer” / “New”. You will need to provide:

The resulting dialog box filled out for WFS metadata should look like:

wfs_metadata.jpg

Select the layer you just entered in the list of available layers and click on “Connect”.

wfs_layer.jpg

Once you successfully connected to the endpoint the list of available layers is displayed. Select the layer you want to access and finally, click on “Add” to display the layer into the map and click on “Close” once it is loaded.

wfs_add.jpg

The following window will be displayed during the loading of the features (metadata tiles). Then all the footprints of the basemap images will be displayed on the map, and the attribute table provides all the metadata:

wfs_loaded.png

Note: Due to an issue with QGIS you need to select “Open Attribute Table” on the WFS layer to make all the WFS entities to load in QGIS. Moreover, there are a very large number of entities in the WFS and the loading time can take several minutes.

ArcGIS Desktop

WMS/WMTS Streaming in ArcGIS Desktop

You can easily access to the OneAtlas Basemap imagery with ESRI ArcGIS Desktop, a commercial product used by GIS professionals to compile, use, and manage geographic information. The procedure to follow is documented directly on the ESRI website.


You will need to provide:

The resulting dialog box filled out for WMS basemap streaming should look like:

ArcMapWMS.jpg

The resulting dialog box filled out for WMTS basemap streaming should look like:

ArcMapWMTS.jpg

And the result in ArcMap is:

WFS Access in ArcGIS Desktop

Prerequisites

The use of WFS requires the user to install the Data Interoperability extension first, and then the user needs to add the Interoperability Connections folder into ArcMap.

Add WFS Server Into ArcMap

In the catalog tab, select the “Interoperability Connections / Add Interoperability Connection” folder. Then select “WFS (Web Feature Service)” as format and then click on the “Parameters…” button:


You will need to provide:

  • The WFS endpoint (see Search results)
  • WFS version: select 2.0.0
  • Credentials to be authorized to display the basemap (see Authenticate Guide)
  • Proxy server (if you network is protected by a proxy)

The resulting dialog box filled out for WFS should look like:

wfs_parameters.png

Add the layers with “Add Data” or click on the catalog tab to open the new WFS layer located in the Interoperability Connections folder as displayed here-below.

SOAP Access

Select “Add ArcGIS server” / “Use GIS services”:

add_server.jpg

You will need to provide:

Click on “Add Data”, go to the GIS Servers category to display this new layer.
