A Project Source is a definition for where data can be retrieved.
A Project Source's primary property is the url it is directed to. The data found at the url's endpoint is then interpreted based on the Service Type the Project Source is configured as.
Depending on the external source or service, data should be interpreted in a specific way and can be used in specific ways. This means that for any given Project Source, an appropriate Service Type must be configured.
The following Service Types are available:
|ESRI_IMAGE||Connection to an ESRI-hosted WMS for image data.|
|ESRI_JSON||Connection to an ESRI-hosted WFS for vector data which supports providing data in a geojson format.|
|GEOJSON||GeoJSON files, such as those hosted on the GeoShare|
|GEOTIFF||GeoTiff files, such as those hosted on the GeoShare|
|WCS_TIFF||Connection to a WCS for grid data which supports providing data in a GeoTIFF format.|
|WFS_GML||Connection to a WFS for vector data which supports providing data in a gml-conformant XML format.|
|WFS_JSON||Connection to a WFS for vector data which supports providing data in a GeoJSON format.|
|WMS_IMAGE||Connection to a WMS for image data which supports providing data in a png or jpeg format.|
- When creating a new Project Source, the Service Types selectable are a subset of all possible types.
