Kevin,

 

This is a great WMS, thanks for posting!  I just featured NEO WMS on my blog
at -
http://carboncloud.blogspot.com/2010/05/neo-web-service-tracking-changes-aro
und.html 

 

Jochen,

 

I would also suggest the CubeWerx WMS it's been around for a while and very
stable - 

 

http://demo.cubewerx.com/demo/cubeserv/cubeserv.cgi?Request=GetCapabilities


 

Also check out NASA OnEarth WMS http://wms.jpl.nasa.gov/wms.cgi 

 

There are many others as well. 

 

Regards

Jeff

Hi Jochen,

The deegree demo server [1] hosts a WMS as well. It always runs with the
latest stable version of deegree.

The Base-URL for the deegree WMS [2], an example for the GetCapabilities
[3] and, last but not least, an example for serving OSM slippy maps via
WMS [4] as direct data source are also available.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Demo WMS server

2010-05-12 Thread Jochen Topf
Thanks, I actually looked at the degree demo server and found at least the
layers I tested to be empty. :-( And because of the size restriction I can't
use it in my case anyway.

And thanks for the other suggestions on this list. None so far solve my problem.

I do not have a WMS client with a user interface where people could go through
the layers list to chose one. (And then maybe wonder, why this particular layer
doesn't work in this case or so.)

I only have a config file which needs a WMS URL, layer and SRS at a minimum.
Something that ideally will never change. I don't want to hardcode a layer that
might not exist anymore tomorrow.

Of course I can set this up easily myself, but would prefer to do it somewhere
where it benefits other people and the community as a whole can support it.

Hi Jochen,

as we are constantly working on improvements for our services, I would
be very interested to hear more about these problems. Maybe we can
discuss them on the deegree users list or by private mail?

Works for me.

Do you have a corporate firewall?  Checkpoint was killing our external WMS

Nope, working from home, from Italy, using one of the biggest ISP,
so direct connection to the net. The IP is dynamic too, and that
WMS server always responded the same way to me.

If I ssh into a server located in the US I get a proper response instead.
That's why I guessed there might be some kind of country based
control or something like that. Maybe the set of addresses my ISP
gives me entered a black list... who knows.


Hi all,
I get the same error too! I'm using a dynamic IP of the biggest Italian
ISP. I think that black lists are becoming a big problem...

Anyways, back on topic, if you want you can use
http://demo.opengeo.org/geoserver
and in particular:
http://demo.opengeo.org/geoserver/ows?service=wmsversion=1.1.1request=GetCapabilities
(the server provides also WFS and WCS services, with a few layers
WFS-T editable)

The set of layers is still a bit messy but I'm planning to publish
at least the ThematicMapping.org country layer and maybe later during
the month the natural earth dataset.

It is a common need; however servers are not always up (especially the JPL one 
as it has a great load placed on it).

For the project I work on we keep a wiki page of demo servers; in the hopes 
that some of them are up at any point in time:
