AutoSync and WMS

Hi. Just to make sure that I'm not missing a trick here, but I believe it's not possible to use a WMS as the reference image in AutoSync. Am I correct? Cheers, Johnnie

Re: AutoSync and WMS

I would be suprised if it is so as WMS is fairly slow connection and I bet Autosync requires data way more and faster. Of course you can copy/download WMS data locally and then use that file. I guess that is only way to use WMS based data in Autosync. ECWP micgh work fast enough but I have some doubts that Autosync is not very compatibe with web streams.

 

I have accidently sometimes asked whole world or country to be downloaded from WMS and I guarantee that it was slow Smiley Tongue

Re: AutoSync and WMS

Thanks Timo. I think the biggest problem is that AutoSync needs pyramid layers in order to do the matching and that wouldn't be possible with a WMS. Ah well. Cheers, Johnnie

Re: AutoSync and WMS

Agreed - and remind that this was just personal long term experience not a company insight from coders who really know. But based on experience I am 99% sure that it is as we concluded the case here. Pyramids will not work in streams and that prevents streams in AutoSync
