I have been asked to create some sort of reporting of OGC services data, and as well some sort of comparison reports to show comparison. I have not worked much with OGC services, but in review I felt the WMS GetCapabilities would be the easiest to extract.

To start moving on the project, I parsed the XML to a flat file and created a database, easy enough, but as I look I see there must be a better way. I have several thousand endpoints to review and need to look at the entire request with time. What tools are available to assist in querying service request, as I learn this product?

  • Are you using something like GeoServer? – Richard Law Nov 24 '15 at 20:00
  • what sort of report do you need? is it about the layers available or usage of the layer? – Ian Turton Nov 25 '15 at 9:15

It sounds to me like you need to set up a catalogue, for example you could use GeoNetwork

You can load metadata into the catalogue and can have a visual comparison through the records, or you can create your own queries against the database of metadata using CSW
