#20283 new enhancement

Add support for GetFeatureInfo WMS functionality

Description (last modified by *Martin*)

WMS servers may provide GetFeatureInfo functionality which is basically querying for various properties of a map object by selected coordinates. It would be very useful if JOSM would have it. It could be done by right-clicking on the WMS map layer and selecting "Get WMS Feature Info" from context menu. Result could be displayed in the tabular form, or in HTML view.

We need to know a public WMS server that implements this functionality if ever we want to support it.

But I don't know if they are legal sources for OSM

I provided them only as samples for developiong this feature in JOSM and not for OSM mapping.

I think request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS is a standard functionality for all WMS servers.

comment:11 by mdk, 3 years ago

Perhaps it would make sense to create a tool (or unit test) which compares the GetCapabilities results from WMS servers with the Maps entries like ImageryCompare is comparing these data with ELI.

@mdk I was just asking for a GetFeatureInfo example. Of course all WMS servers have to support GetCapabilities, that's how WMS works. The first link gave me what I needed:

        <OnlineResource xlink:type="simple" xlink:href=""/>
