Mineral Resources On-Line Spatial Data

OGC Web Feature Services (WFS) available

The Open Geospatial Consortium provides a specification for serving geographic information through the web as individual features; this is called the Web Feature Service specification. This mechanism provides the attribute information along with the geometry of each feature, so that software can perform calculations using the attributes or change the visible representation of the features in a data set. The services listed below conform to the WFS specification version 1.1.0 or 1.0.0.
