Servicio WMS, Global, National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), GLIMS Mediciones de Glaciares desde el Espacio

The Global Land Ice Measurements from Space (GLIMS) initiative is a cooperative effort of over sixty institutions world-wide with the goal of inventorying and monitoring a majority of the world's estimated 160000 glaciers. Each GLIMS institution oversees the analysis of satellite imagery for a particular region containing glacier ice. Data received by the GLIMS team at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado are inserted into a geospatial database and made available via an on-line interactive map, text-based search interface, a Web Map Service (WMS), and a Web Feature Service (WFS). The GLIMS Glacier Database contains outlines for glaciers smapping all continents having glacial ice. This OGC Web Service is designed to serve GLIMS Glacier Outlines ( via the OGC WMS and WFS protocols.. Reference systems offered by this service are:EPSG:4326, epsg:4326.
