Demonstration requests

Sample OpenLayers WMS client
WFS sample requests

Service notes

  • 100,000 feature limit applies to all requests. If your query returns more than this, page the results using the GeoServer maxFeatures and startIndex vendor parameters
  • EPSG:4283; EPSG:4326; ESPG:900913 gridsets are cached in image/png format so please use these when requesting WMS images
  • Set the TILED=true parameter when making WMS GetMap requests to enable caching when using the above gridsets
  • Some WMS layers won't display until you've zoomed in
  • Aggressive timeouts (30 seconds) have been set on WMS services to ensure the service is performing. You are recommended to use a tiled WMS client to guard against timeout errors
  • Web services are only available as (Geoserver) simple features
  • A demonstration subset of Geofabric data for Hunter River region has been created to allow users to explore Geofabric data whilst minimising data volume related timeouts and feature limits
