State Address Registry and administrative borders WMS service

The Web Map Service (WMS) is a standard protocol for web sharing of geospatial data from one or several geospatial databases. The WMS request determines which geospatial layer or zone of interest is to be processed and yields a raster format map image for viewing in a browser.

The spatial data web services have been developed so that any interested party could use the geospatial data available to them as the background data layer in order to connect the spatial data sets of the Cadastre and the State Registry of Addresses conveniently and easily to obtain additional information for their professional activities:

  • preparation of territory border spatial data and border descriptions, global positioning system (GPS) or logistics system development, map development, local government development and development of detailed plans;
  • preparation of forest exploitation organisation projects, preparation of forest taxation maps, nature reserve, reserve, protected landscape area zoning preparation and establishment of borders, environment protection and pollution map development, graphical marking of various types of utilities and business entities.
