This Question is about Natural Earth Project. I tried to do some research about creating my own WMS and came across this project. The web page says :

Natural Earth is a public domain map dataset available at 1:10m, 1:50m, and 1:110 million scales. Featuring tightly integrated vector and raster data, with Natural Earth you can make a variety of visually pleasing, well-crafted maps with cartography or GIS software.

How can I harvest the data for my WMS So that it can be used with Mapinfo or Other software?

    Hi @kitex. As you have already noted yourself, your post contains more than one question. Please split them into separate questions - each focusing on a single problem. That would be more appropriate for the Q&A format of this site.

  • @kitex Although the questions are related; they are not unique in scope. The third question has been discussed on this stack exchange. The first question is a discussion of its own. The idea is that you have one question per post so you'll have one answer per post. Having 3 different questions in the same post, you will not be able to accept 3 answers.
