CHRONOS provides services for geospatial data via WFS and WMS capabilities URL's can be found to the right of this page. In addition, several tutorials will be provided examples of the use of these resources.
CHRONOS is integrating the Cartoweb open source cross platform GIS client into the geospatially enabled data sources. The goal is to connect data searched geospatially into the other searches (text and time based) at the CHRONOS site. Also we will connect these with external open data source reachable via service calls. Integrating searches regardless of the user interface is a goal to address the need for researchers to quickly and effectively locate data related to their research efforts.
