Dataset Extents Plots

Below are a set of plots showing the extents of dataset coverage served up by geospatial web services (Specifically: Web Map Services (WMS), Web Coverage Services (WCS), Web Feature Services (WFS), and Web Map Tile Services (WMTS)) for various parts of the globe. These plots are created by using the extents that the datasets declare they cover. You can click on plots to see larger, more detailed maps for that area, including a spectral colour scheme which shows more detail (but isn't very asthetic).

Processing Limitations/Caveats

In the spirit of good data science we want to highlight the caveats associated with these plots.
