Description

Hi,

geoimage.at is a high res wms service for the whole of Austria made available publicly (explicitely naming openstreetmap) in July. Currently they only provide WMS, but Sven Geggus has kindly provided a web service accepting tile urls sent by potlatch, and returning HTTP redirects with the appropriate URL for the geoimage.at service, which potlatch then uses to fetch the actual image(s). Could this web service be included in the default list of background imagery layers? A working URL is the following (the key was explicitely provided for openstreetmap editors, such that it can be incorporated without every user needing to configure his own link; currently this has a higher limit of allowed requests compared to standard accounts; namely 10million instead of 50thousand; I and some others have a personal email from the responsible person at geomage.at telling us about this, in case this is needed). The URL working for me is:

http://geoimage.openstreetmap.at/4d80de696cd562a63ce463a58a61488d/$z/$x/$y.jpg

(would there be a possibility to remind users that they should use source=geoimage.at when using this as background layer?)

BTW: Sven also provides the source code of the service, in case this could be useful for other WMS services as well:

http://svn.openstreetmap.org/sites/wms.openstreetmap.de/geoimage.wsgi

Thanks, Holger
