WMSCapabilities

Web Map Service capabilities document

Description

A WMSCapabilities object represents a Web Map Service (WMS) capabilities document obtained from a WMS server. A capabilities document is an XML document that contains metadata describing the geographic content offered by the server.

Creation

You can create a WMSCapabilities object using the WMSCapabilities function described here, or using the wmsinfo function to specify a timeout. A WMSCapabilities is also returned from the getCapabilities function when you have a WebMapServer object.

capabilities = WMSCapabilites(serverURL,capabilitiesResponse)

Description

example

capabilities = WMSCapabilites(serverURL,capabilitiesResponse) creates a WMSCapabilities object, setting the ServerURL property and defining the capabilities of the server using the XML elements in capabilitiesResponse.

serverURL = nasa(1).ServerURL;
server = WebMapServer(serverURL);
