WCS (OGC Web Coverage Service)ΒΆ

This plugin reads raster coverage data in a limited fashion based on the OGC Web Coverage Service specification. In osgEarth it is only really useful for fetching elevation grid data tiles. We support a subset of WCS 1.1.

Example usage:

<elevation driver="wcs">


url:Location of the WCS resource
identifier:WCS identifier (i.e., layer to read)
format:Format of the data to return (usually tif)
elevation_unit:Unit to use when interpreting elevation grid height values (defaults to m)
range_subset:WCS range subset string (see the WCS docs)
