Trouble loading WMS layer of weather forecast
« on: May 14, 2011, 00:45:52 »
Hi,

I just found out about brilliant possibilities with wms support and searched for a weather overlay. I was looking for either a worldwide, EU or German service. Unfortunately the only two I found could not be imported into Locus (all others are just US and Canada services).
The URL I tried are the following:
- http://http://geohub.jrc.ec.europa.eu/effis/ows?service=wms&version=1.1.1&request=GetCapabilities
- http://http://wms.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/wms.cgi?service=wms&version=1.1.1&request=GetCapabilities

At least the browser version of the NASA service seems to be brilliant and could extend Locus with some brilliant weather forecast information:
http://http://www.map.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/viewer.cgi?project=geos5-inst3d_met_p

Do you have any idea about how to load this service? Any help is appreciated! ;-)


Best regards,
Martin

Hi,
  first - do not add &version= ... stuff into url. Locus will add it by it's own. So "http://geohub.jrc.ec.europa.eu/effis/ows" works fine

second nasa service. As I look they have wrong definition in it's capabilities file. I have tried it also in ArcGIS explorer and seems that there is really something wrong.
