Introduction

deegree web services are implementations of the Geospatial Web Service Specifications of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the INSPIRE Network Services.

deegree web services include the following services:

  • Web Feature Service (WFS): Provides access to raw geospatial data objects
  • Web Map Service (WMS): Serves maps rendered from geospatial data
  • Web Map Tile Service (WMTS): Serves pre-rendered map tiles
  • Catalogue Service for the Web (CSW): Performs searches for geospatial datasets and services
  • Web Processing Service (WPS): Executes geospatial processes

With a single deegree webservices installation, you can set up one of the above services, all of them or even multiple services of the same type.
