Download services

The Download services section displays the operational status of your published download services. You can activate and deactivate your services using the toggle button in the top left corner. After activation, you manually start the publishing process with the «Publish Services» button in the top right corner.

The Download service panel provides a list of published download services. Click on the name of the service to open it in a browser and view the data directly. Click on the icon to copy the service URL. URL (Download-Service/ATOM) provides an ATOM feed URL. This URL can best be watched with Firefox or an ATOM feed client. IE11, Chrome and Edge do not have native ATOM feed clients, though plug-ins are available.

The Metadata panel provides a list of published metadata. To copy any URL to the clipboard, click the icon to the right of the URL.

The test reports panel provides a list of PDFs which contain the results of a series of tests executed on published metadata and services. Click on the test report to open it in a browser and view the test results directly.

The number and type of tests executed on your metadata and services reflect your compliancy requirements.

Metadata tests are executed on dataset metadata and download and view service metadata. Tests check for ISO, GDI-DE and INSPIRE compliancy.

Tests executed on Metadata:

Test Conformity Level Resource Comments
# internal identifier Title GDI-DE INSPIRE Dataset-Metadata Service-Metadata
md_gdi Metadaten | Metadata: ISO and GDI-DE X X X not executed for restricted services
md_inspire Metadaten | Metadata: INSPIRE X X X


Service tests are executed on web mapping services (WMS), web feature services (WFS) and atom feeds. Tests check for ISO, GDI-DE and INSPIRE compliancy.

Tests executed on Services:

Test Conformity Level Resource Comments
# internal identifier Title GDI-DE INSPIRE-Conformant INSPIRE-Interoperable WMS WFS Atom-Feed
srv_wms13_inspire_ir_nss Kartendienste | Map Services: INSPIRE View Service WMS 1.3.0 / IR Networkservices X X tests WMS 1.3.0, not executed for restricted services

Example: For a WMS1.3 view service with conformity levels GDI-DE, INSPIRE-Conformant, INSPIRE-Interoperable the tests #srv_wms13_inspire_ir_nss and #srv_wms13_inspire_ir_isdss will be executed.

The Service settings panel provides a toggle switch to flip the coordinate axes of your data set. If your data set is displaying in flipped coordinates, toggle the switch to correct the display.

The Service log panel displays a transaction log which describes processes executed on your data set and any errors that may occur during publishing. The Service log is generated by the service publisher.
