Downloading Data from WMS Servers... Possible?? new Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I have found a bunch of data that I need on a WMS server, but the server is very unreliable and is frequently down.  Is there ANY way, be it abstract, difficult or otherwise, to somehow download or extract this data so that I have it on my hard drive?  In this case, they are printed maps, rasters.  I suppose I could export the maps and then georeference them myself?  I am guessing the data is in WMS format so that you can't download it?  Just looking for a way around this!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

J.R.

JR,


Use GlobalMapper to extract data from WMS.  I do it quite a bit with this software.  It runs around $399 per license and can be obtained from http://www.bluemarblegeo.com/global-mapper/.
