OGC WMS to Geopaparazzi mapurls generator

View project onGitHub


After having seen all the problems that the creation of a mapurl for WMS services was causing, we decided to create a small service, that would automatically generate mapurls for Geopaparazzi for known WMS services.

The client in geopaparazzi

For geopaparazzi users everything is transparent, the import view has an entry named: MAPURL

Once you enter that menu, you find the services query view:

Here you can define some filter parameters and start the query.

In the following example case the gps was placed in Italy, so the query returned:

One can then simply download the service, which will install the mapurl inside the system. The user is prompted for a custom name to name the service after, else the original name will be used. Since the original name could be duplicated in different services, the prefix "tanto_" will be added in that case.
