The WebAtlasDE is an Internet web service developed jointly by the Federation and the federal states (Länder) and provided by the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG). On the basis of official spatial base data it shows an attractive, nationwide uniform map representation in zoom levels from the single building to an overview of Germany. Its efficient realization based on international standards and its modern cartographical design support various application fields.
Base data for the WebAtlasDE are the Basic Landscape Model and house coordinates as well as building polygons from the Real Estate Cadastre of the Länder as well as the Digital Landscape Models 1:250,000 and 1:1,000,000, maintained at the BKG. The Länder symbolize these data in a uniform symbol key and produce an image archive. The image archive is processed to a high-performance Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) and flexibly applicable Web Map Services (WMS) in the BKG.
Further details you will find in the documentation and in the metadata (graphic display WMS, graphic display WMTS and XML-metadata file WMS, XML-metadata file WMTS ).
