In addition to providing access to DNR data via "zip & ship" the Deli will be offering selected layers using Open Geospatial Consortium web interoperability specifications.

Ultimately three OGC specifications will be supported:

  • Web Mapping Service (WMS) - for access to maps generated from Deli data
  • Web Feature Service (WFS) - for feature-based access to vector data
  • Web Coverage Service (WCS) - for unfiltered access to raster data

Currently limited WMS and WFS capabilities are available.

To add our WMS Service to ArcCatalog (9.x):

  • ArcCatalog > GIS Servers > Add WMS Server
  • URL:   http://deli.dnr.state.mn.us/cgi-bin/wms?map=DELI_WMS_MAPFILE&
Note that many of the layers are scale based and are grayed out until you zoom in to a certain scale.
