The data is accessed via the download service or web services. Which option is better suited in each individual case depends on the field of application, the project planned and the user’s level of knowledge.
Data access via the download service is ideal:
- to process a manageable number of datasets in a CAD programme
- if the user only has little GIS knowhow
Data access via the web services is ideal:
- to use several datasets together and conduct analyses with them in a GIS programme. However, this does require specialist GIS knowledge.
