The selected organisation: Latvijas Ģeotelpiskās informācijas aģentūra
Short description:
The WMS service (Web Map Service) includes a map that contains information layers with data on changes between 2006 and 2012 data on agricultural land, forests and natural areas, wetlands, water bodies, artificial areas. Satellite images prepared by the European Space Agency were used as a basis. In addition, orthophoto maps, topographic map in the scale of 1:50 000, forest maps of the State Forest Service, land parcel identification system data were used. The data correspond to a scale of 1: 100,000. The CLC2006 data was audited and the audited data layer was prepared before the change mapping. All changes larger than 5 ha in terms of area were mapped, where the smallest mapping unit is 25 ha.

The data is intended for use by any person for free.

The territorial coverage of the service covers the entire territory of Latvia.

The data is prepared in the form of a Web Map Service (WMS), which is a standard protocol for publishing pre-prepared geographic information on the Internet in the form of mosaic images that can be added to the browser as a background layer.
WMS can be connected as a background card for professional GIS and CAD software - ESRI ArcGIS, Bentley Map, MicroStation v8i, Intergraph Geomedia, MapInfo and others, as well as can be used with open source programs QGIS, GRASS GIS, ProGIS, OpenJUMP and other programs. WMS can also be added to map publishing browsers as separate layers.
WMS is a direct connection to the data holder's database.
The connected services can be connected and disconnected by the WMS user in layers defined by the data preparer.
They cannot be modified, deleted or downloaded.
