ScienceBase provides a number of ways to interface with the geospatial information contained in either the metadata of ScienceBase Items from the ScienceBase Catalog or actual geospatial data from the ScienceBase Repository. Geospatial services from ScienceBase provide capability for users to interact with the information using various types of geospatial information systems and mapping clients. Most of these services rely on established OGC specifications for web services, such as web map services (WMS) and web feature services (WFS).
