The geo-referenced data layers can be displayed in a web browser or Geographic Information System (GIS) and incorporated in your own web application.
Accessing the EMIS WMS
The EMIS WMS is accessible in 2 dataset resolutions (4km or 2km) for several sensors at the Pan-European scale. Enter one of the following addresses into your WMS client:
Pan-European scale
Global scale
EMIS service requests
The EMIS WMS supports the GetCapabilities, GetMap and GetFeatureInfo operations as defined in the OGC WMS standard (version 1.3.0).
GetCapabilities
The GetCapabilities request produces the information about the layers contained in the service in the form of a descriptive XML document.

Example of a request addressed to the EMIS service:

The EMIS WMS can also provide support to temporal requests. This is done by providing a TIME parameter with a time value (YYYY-MM) in the GetMap request (see first GetMap example)
GetMap
Using the information given in the GetCapabilities request, the GetMap request returns a raster map containing the requested layer selected from all the available layers as defined in the XML document. The elements such as the data layer, region, projection, size of the returned image, image format, etc. are defined in the form of arguments.

The following is an example of a GetMap request that returns an image of the Chrorophyll-a concentration Anomalies of the Black Sea from the MERIS satellite (2km resolution) in June 2005:
The following is an example of a GetMap request that returns an image of the January climatology for the Sea Surface Temperature at Pan-European scale from the PATHFINDER satellite (4km resolution):
GetFeatureInfo
The GetFeatureInfo operation requests the spatial and attribute data for the features at a given location on a map.
