API Reference Layered View - how it works

Dear all,

in the documentation I found this:



The NCSLayeredView plug-in enables your web page to load and display ECW and JPEG 2000 compressed images by specifying its URL. Is the NCSLayeredView a browser plug-in? 

Can someome please telle me how an user can take advantage of this API? thank you

For example, can I use this API with Open Layer?


thanks, regards

Giuseppe Maldera

Re: API Reference Layered View - how it works

NCSLayeredView is a very old JavaScript library that is no longer being actively developed. So I would suggest using WMS/WMTS via Open Layers or Leaflet if possible.


All images that have a defined EPSG code can be easily displayed using Open Layers or Leaflet as WMS/WMTS layers.

Layers that do not have any spatial referencing can be displayed as WMS in Open Layers using the projection CRS:1

This is how the CRS:1 Projection can be defined in Open Layers

var projection = new ol.proj.Projection({
  code: 'CRS:1',
  units: 'pixels',
  extent: extent



But if you still want some samples on how to use NCSLayeredView, there are some samples that come with Apollo core.

Any suggestion how to manage authentication best when working with leaflet to request the WMS?
