I guess everything is in the title, I would like to be able to select a map and have it returned.
This is because I'd like later on to return a GeoTIFF which would have been generated by the server, but I'm making small steps.

I already have a process that works fine on the GeoServer WPS demo, but when trying with other clients, instead of offering me a list of maps I have hosted to choose from, I am asked for a URL. (I have no idea as to what I should enter as URL, and I don't care since it is not very user-friendy...)
I think that the problem here is that GeoServer "cheats" when using his own demo client, because it knows the hosted maps, which other clients don't. I am therefore looking for the way, either for the process to return a catalog of the available maps (if it works), or another solution you could offer me.

  • The title question doesn't seem to match the body of the question, do you want to get at a catalogue of maps through WPS, or just a map, or both perhaps through a process like first getting the catalogue and then a map from some reference in the catalogue. Which other clients have you tried? – nmtoken Nov 9 '16 at 8:33
  • @nmtoken I wanted to be able to send a catalogue of maps for the other end to chose from. – Saryk Nov 9 '16 at 8:59

The list of available maps is contained in the WMS capabilities document (assuming I understand what you mean by map)

  • Indeed it is, however I wanted to get the maps via WPS. The WMS and WFS services work allright – Saryk Oct 10 '13 at 7:53
