Map Background Index

ArkeoGIS offers its users the possibility to choose, within the framework of their personal project, in addition to the default funds, some thematic maps among different types of online resources.

  • Thematic maps put online by third party services and partners. The connection settings with these maps servers are made by the administrators at the users' request. The data flows and projections supported by ArkeoGIS are as follows :
    • Data flows : WMS 1.1.1 et 1.3.0, WMTS
    • Projection systems : WGS84, CRS:84, webmercator.
  • Shape layers put online by administrators at users' request.
    • Format: SHP

The table below presents an index of available layers and their characteristics (suppliers and data managers, periods concerned, accessible zoom levels, type and description).

The list of data flow servers connected with ArkeoGIS is evolving. If you want connections to servers not on this list, you can contact your user community.
