WmsCapabilities - Providing More Information in the XML

MapSuite,

I’d like to provide more information within the XML Capabilities and make that available to the client application. For example, for each layer I would like to include the name of the WMS PlugIn.

Is there a standard way with the MapSuite WMS Server Edition sample application to include additional information in response to a GetCapabilities from the client? If so, would you provide some code snippets?

Thanks,
Dennis

Hi Dennis,

The WMS Plugin name don’t need to be known by client side, because our WMS server support the WMS standard and the plugin is not included in WMS standard, the client side just know the layer name, style name etc.

So if you want to build you capability please just refer the standard of WMS: http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wms

And here is a sample of our server: https://worldmapkit1.thinkgeo.com/WmsServer.axd?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=GetCapabilities

Wish that’s helpful.

Regards,

Ethan
