How do Web Mapping Services work?

WMS provides a single, geo-referenced image rendered at multiple scales in a GIS.

- Use it to zoom though the most detailed mapping.

- WMS is an ideal solution for a small business enterprise.


WMTS gives you a high quality, pre-rendered tile that’s delivered at specific scales.

- This means you can scale the images, almost infinitely.

- WMTS provides you with a much faster map service.


Flexible options to meet your business needs

At Emapsite, we understand that each company has unique needs when it comes to accessing geospatial data. That's why we offer a range of flexible packages designed to meet your specific business requirements. Our services are available in two distinct forms: "Pre-licensed" and "Transactional."

If you already possess a valid licence for a specific dataset, our "Pre-licensed" services are the perfect fit for you. With this option, our team of data professionals will take care of hosting, managing, and maintaining your geospatial database and datasets. You can leverage our expertise and infrastructure while utilising your own licensed dataset seamlessly.

For those looking for a more streamlined approach, our "Transactional" services include dataset licensing within the overall tariff. This means you won't have to acquire separate licenses for the datasets you need. We handle the dataset licensing as part of the service, providing you with effortless access to the geospatial data that is crucial to your operations.


Emapsite’s web mapping services are subscription services, with flexible pricing based on expected usage. The software is priced against the volume of requests you make - with a tariff that's priced to reflect the number of feature requests you make.

No matter which option you choose, Emapsite's geospatial services comply with Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards, ensuring seamless interoperability and compatibility with other systems and applications. This allows you to stay focused on your core business goals while relying on the expertise and support of our dedicated team of data professionals.
