I want to understand how I can learn the GIS server type of a certain link. In instance I want to know which type of server is being used for http://barajlar.dsi.gov.tr/ web site.

Related server links are http://tilesrv01.dsi.gov.tr/ and spatialsrv01.dsi.gov.tr. Are they using GeoServer, ArcGIS, Mapnik, ..vs?

    It's not always easy to tell what product is in use, but looking at the "Net" tab in Firebug (Firefox extension), I see a reference to /js/openlayers/OpenLayers.js and a bunch of tile gets from mtsN.google.com, so I'd guess OpenLayers – Vince Jul 23 '15 at 15:15
  • It is really hard to tell, because there are no relevant error messages returned by the server. The only things I can tell for sure is, that they are using a Windows IIS7 Server and serving UTFGrids, which are not produced by a lot of servers. – bennos Jul 24 '15 at 9:53
  • Openlayers seems like the frontend of the application but I am more interested at the server where the data is stored so that I check the WMS and WFS links. – Ugur Isik Jul 24 '15 at 13:54
  • @UgurIsik: Maybe they don't have no WMS and WFS servers and are just serving tiles (preprocessed or with a tile server). I tried with a GetCapabilities, but there was no response, but you can try different variants and maybe you will have success at some point. – bennos Jul 28 '15 at 7:57
  • Is this intended to be a generic question, as in how can I work out which services are being used to provide the data and which clients have been used to show the data, for any web site showing maps, or is it specific to this site? – nmtoken Mar 13 '16 at 10:06
