Downloading data

The last step is to get the actual data. Each metadata record about georeferenced map contains link  to the original dataset in GeoTIFF format published via Web Coverage Service (WCS). In addition, respective scanned dataset can be downloaded via simple HTTP web link . Additional information about cadastral data can be downloaded as PDF files . Each georeferenced dataset can be used in any GIS client application which can work with OGC services.
