The integrated topographic information system (iTIS) portal is currently being developed to provide intranet and internet users access to the iTIS using a Web Feature data Server (WFS), Geography Markup Language (GML) data Server, Web Map Service (WMS) and access to imagery.
The WFS and GML data Servers will permit database connection to the iTIS. GML is an open format developed by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The WMS will provide thin-client access to the iTIS in order to create customised maps which can then be downloaded by the user.
The Sales service provides access to internet and intranet users wishing to browse products and services of the National Geo-spatial Information (NGI), select the products and services they wish to acquire and then place an order. This Sales service has now been integrated with the iTIS portal. Thus, as new and updated products are completed and uploaded into the iTIS, these will immediately become available to users via the iTIS portal.
