View data in GIS

Vegetation cover in the RAP can be easily imported and viewed in ArcGIS without downloading big datasets. This allows for quick interaction with and visualization of the data. For instance, users can add vegetation cover to a pre-existing project map. These data can be viewed as a web map tile service (WMTS) using the steps below.

Connecting to WMTS

  1. In the Catalog window, expand the GIS Servers node and double-click “Add WMTS Server”. Note: The images below reference WMS, but be sure to select WMTS.

  2. Type in the server URL: https://rangelands.app/wmts/vegCoverWMTS.xml (you do not need to enter a user or password).

  3. Click "Get Layers" to see available layers.

  4. Click "OK".
