Integrate clear colourful maps into your own website or application. Choose data sources and adapt colour, symbology, extent, background textures and line types to fully customise your map.

This page give some usage examples of the [[MapRestServiceApi|Map REST Service API]].

Be aware that these examples do *not conform to RFC 3986*, as the current implementation still doesn't follow the proposed syntaxis. It means that the syntaxis of these examples (and MapRest Services) may change in the coming weeks.

## WMS and Layers
15 50 Franck Theeten
16 50 Franck Theeten
The WMS bound to the service is http://edit.africamuseum.be/geoserver/ (don't forget the trailing slash).
17 50 Franck Theeten
18 57 Franck Theeten
Since December 2012, this service use the version 2.2.2 of GeoServer.
19 50 Franck Theeten
20 53 Franck Theeten
The services displays TDWG and vmap0 layers (http://gis-lab.info/qa/vmap0-eng.html) imported in the "topp" namespace.
21 53 Franck Theeten
22 53 Franck Theeten
The list of layers can be accessed by executing a WMS GetCapabilties request on the "topp" dataset:

http://edit.africamuseum.be/geoserver/topp/wms?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities.
25 53 Franck Theeten
26 53 Franck Theeten
Alternatively, you can also use the "preview layer" part of the graphical interface of GeoServer

## Description of layers
33 53 Franck Theeten
34 51 Franck Theeten
Since 2011, any layer registered in the WMS can be used in distribution maps and have its style dynamically defined in the HTTP GET parameters (this functionnality was originally limited to TDWG layers).
35 51 Franck Theeten
36 51 Franck Theeten
When building a query, the programmer needs to know the structure of a layer (i.e. the name and the type of fields) since some functionnalities do not work withnumeric attributes. For instance, you can define a filter to apply a style on specific values (like names of countries), but only if the correponding attribute in the database has a text format (you cannot apply filter on integer column).
37 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
38 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
It is possible to get an XML describing the types and fieldnames of a layer by running a WFS "DescribeFeature" query on GeoServer like in the example below ("typename" being the name of the layer) 
39 51 Franck Theeten
40 51 Franck Theeten
e.g:
41 51 Franck Theeten
42 51 Franck Theeten
http://edit.africamuseum.be/geoserver/topp/wfs?service=WFS&version=1.1.0&request=DescribefeatureType&typename=topp:vmap0_afsa_hydro_inland_water_prm_only_a
43 51 Franck Theeten
44 53 Franck Theeten
=> in the answer: "xsd:string" corresponds to attribute having a test format that can be used in filter.

#### Basic Issues
57 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
58 9 Andreas Kohlbecker
Map Image size is specified as 400 pixels width. It means the height will be 200 pixels (just the half). Attention: you cannot specify an odd number as width/height.
59 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
60 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
A bounding box (bbox) is specified. We strongly recommend to use bbox if know it (for example if all your data is on the same zone).
61 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
62 9 Andreas Kohlbecker
We provide world country borders and all TDWG levels as background. This parameter must be specified in "l" parameter (l=earth in that example).
63 9 Andreas Kohlbecker
64 62 Andreas Kohlbecker
Current codes for background layers are:
65 3 Andreas Kohlbecker
66 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* Country borders: earth
67 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* TDWG level 1: tdwg1
68 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* TDWG level 2: tdwg2
69 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* TDWG level 3: tdwg3
70 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* TDWG level 4: tdwg4

####  Recalculate Parameter
80 26 Pere Roca Ristol
81 26 Pere Roca Ristol
We see here the "recalculate" parameter in action. 
82 26 Pere Roca Ristol
83 34 Pere Roca Ristol
When the bbox is not specified, the service will calculate it and try to fit the image to the specified dimensions (width/height). It can cause distorted images. 
84 6 Andreas Kohlbecker
85 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
Recalculate=true (this is the default if nothing is specified) tries to avoid these distortions. It means also that in some cases the final image size will change as you can see in the first image.

####  Different TDWG Layers
99 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
100 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
You can mix different TDWG layers. In that case, TDWG level 3 and TDWG level 1.
101 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
102 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
No background layer is defined, so you simply get the specified areas.

#### Symbolize Parameters
111 62 Andreas Kohlbecker
112 7 Andreas Kohlbecker
A more complex styling. The parameters for styling an area are:
113 7 Andreas Kohlbecker
114 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* Area fill color
115 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* Area stroke color
116 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* Area stroke width
117 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* Area stroke dash style: we currently provide 1_2,1_4,2_2,2_4,5_7 and 10_5 but it can change. First parameter determine the length in pixels to draw the line, and the second, the length in pixels to blank out the line. As example, 5_7 means a very dashed line (separated 7 pixels one line from another).
118 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
119 41 Niels Hoffmann
We always provide default values. So, you could even specify styles "a" and "b"  as a:|b: and the image will be generated. 
120 28 Pere Roca Ristol
121 27 Pere Roca Ristol
A style like b:0000ff~2  would mean 0000ff fill color and 2 pixels stroke width. The other parameters would be set as default.

131 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
A legend can be appended to your map in different positions. 
132 28 Pere Roca Ristol
133 28 Pere Roca Ristol
Specify "title" parameter, associating to each style the desired legend. Also legend=1 and "mlp" (map legend position) 
134 28 Pere Roca Ristol
135 28 Pere Roca Ristol
It is important to assign, for each style, a title, otherwise cause error.
136 28 Pere Roca Ristol
137 28 Pere Roca Ristol
The map legend position can be:
138 28 Pere Roca Ristol

The second parameter of "symbols"  specifies the size of the image used for hatching.

#### Using MapRest on a webmapping application
173 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
174 31 Pere Roca Ristol
All these mapping services can be used on a dynamic webmapping application like [OpenLayers](http://openlayers.org/.) 
175 31 Pere Roca Ristol
176 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
The question is that, if desired, we return back not an image but a file that specifies the path to the XML that is used for layer symbolization. 
177 30 Pere Roca Ristol
178 64 Andreas Kohlbecker
With some little javascript coding you can get dynamic maps (zoom in/out, panning...).
179 64 Andreas Kohlbecker
180 30 Pere Roca Ristol
Some EDIT dataportals using this technology are PalmWeb (http://dev.e-taxonomy.eu/dataportal/palmae/) and Cichorieae (http://dev.e-taxonomy.eu/dataportal/cichorieae/)
181 30 Pere Roca Ristol
182 30 Pere Roca Ristol
How to get this file to be integrated on webmapping application? just specify "img=false" and will get a JSON file that could be something similar to...

189 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
~~~
190 33 Pere Roca Ristol
191 32 Pere Roca Ristol
As you can see, there is the name of XML (SLD) files that provide symbolization for each of specified TDWG layer. Also the legend is specified there.
192 33 Pere Roca Ristol
193 32 Pere Roca Ristol
With some javascript coding you can get dynamic maps. A big advantage of using these widgets is that they automatically calculate the scale at which the image has to be visualized. 
194 20 Pere Roca Ristol
195 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
By this way you can avoid distorted images that too often happen with "image" MapRest services.

208 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* symbol size
209 65 Andreas Kohlbecker
* a name to be used on the legend
210 47 Franck Theeten
211 49 Franck Theeten
Also a "q_layer" has to be specified. It must be the same than the background layer and is used to calculate the bbox.

213 47 Franck Theeten
ATBI sites like Gemer (http://www.atbi.eu/gemer/) and Mercantour/Alpi-Marittime (http://www.atbi.eu/mercantour-marittime/) are already using this service.
