Procedure: MINIMUM MAP ELEMENTS FOR INTERNET MAP SERVER (IMS) APPLICATIONS
You are invited to read the definitions of terms used in this data standard.
||FWS Web Map Standards for Internet Map Server (IMS) Applications|
This standard identifies and defines the required map elements when developing Web Map Applications on USFWS Internet and Intranet sites. These map elements are not specific to a particular software package or project type and should not hinder creativity in developing new tools or improving site functionality. Many elements are categorized as “If Applicable”. This means that if a software package enables the creator to add specified elements, it is required in the application. As with any standards document, these standards will evolve over time and it is reasonable to expect that changes in web and geospatial technology and future development efforts will contribute to the evolution of this document.
