We have added a new functionality to our map service: download datasets. Depending on the copyright, it is now possible to download the layer on your computer. This can be very useful for partners who want to modify or use the dataset to make their own maps.
The layers can be downloaded in two formats:
- Web Map Service: it can be viewed (not modified) from any GIS software with WMS capabilities like ArcGIS, or form an open source software like Gaia.
- ESRI shape file: probably the most common GIS format, it can be used directly in ArcGIS.
Hope you like and find useful this improvement!!
