OpenGIS WMS - Read WMS server images into AutoCAD
The WMS server reader is an AutoCAD extension to
raster information in a CADenvironment.The MWS extensions have been created to query, deliver and display optimised raster entities from aWMS server such as MapGuide or MapInfo with appropriate resolution and georeferencing.The reader uses the power and
of WMS servers to manage requests for data andreceive appropriately scaled, positioned and optimised images.This saves time (average 9 seconds per raster request) and network resources (100KB image returnedinstead of 2MB).
Default AutoCAD raster handling is inefficient, especially for large tiled coverages.
The large data processing overheads are managed by the server and not by CAD.
Files transferred are smaller
Much faster displaying of images
Better use of resources
