Horizon Marine adds Web Mapping Service to Eddy Watch

Thursday, September 06, 2007
Horizon Marine has added a new Web Mapping Service (WMS) to its suite of web-based mapping products available to Eddy Watch subscribers. This new product allows clients to import Horizon Marine’s proprietary data into their own Geographic Information System (GIS). These data layers include tropical storm tracks, GPS drifter data, Loop Current and eddy fronts, satellite imagery, and forecast charts. Once the Horizon Marine WMS has been added to an end user’s GIS, the layers continually update, eliminating the need for clients to add new layers just to update their maps. This new WMS seamlessly integrates into GIS applications such as ESRI’s ArcGIS and is compliant with the standards for Web Map Services as laid out by Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.
