I'm new to QGIS and also new to Geographic Information Systems vocabulary so I have been learning with practice.
I'm working on a map which is only available at ESRI REST, WMS and WFS extensions. I managed to open it with WMS extension. I need to work on data but the data attributes are not anywhere to be seen. I know why since those letters stand for Web Map Service. Some online answers on forums stated that in order to get the data from these services, the WMS file could be exported as a raster layer (.tif extension). However, when I try it I obtained the following message:
Cannot write raster. Error code: data source creation Cannot create new dataset. Attempt to create 0x0 dataset is illegal, sizes must be larger than zero.
For this reason, I suppose QGIS cannot access the raw data either.
If it is possible, how do I work with data attributes from WMS/WFS files?
My goal is to save it as a shapefile, or database and not just the raster file.
I'm asking on a new question because I have not figured out how to solve my problem with the answers already available.
If you're searching how to save a shapefile from WFS, WMS or Esri REST map, you can do it from WFS. Just export it as a Esri Shapefile: right-click on layer, then Save as and finally Export features as... Hope this can help.
