National Weather Service Data as OGC Web Services on the public Cloud

This page is for data that is available as Geospatial Information System (GIS) Web Services running on the public cloud. This page contains web services that follow the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards for web services. Three standards are supported - Web Mapping Services (WMS), Web Feature Services (WFS) and Web Coverage Services (WCS).

Note: These are experimental services running on the public cloud and are NOT supported 24x7.  Some services only available on the public cloud as noted in red.

A limited set of data are available at this time and the links are below.

For questions or concerns about these experimental services, please contact the CloudGIS team.
