22.214.171.124 Creating a Web Map Context (WMC) document
Saving your current Portal view as a WMC document is an easy way to save your personal data view and allows you to open the same view again at a later date. This avoids the need to keep adding layers to the view each time you enter the Portal. This is most useful if viewing a large number of layers at any one time.
- Click the Save WMC context button to create a WMC document that can be read by a variety of web map clients
- Enter a file name of your choice that you will save the WMC as, and click OK.
This will create a WMC document containing all the geology maps you currently have added to the OneGeology Portal. Once the WMC document has been created you can save it or choose to immediately open the data in your client.
'Web Map Context Documents' is an OGC specification and any WMC document created in the portal should be usable in a number of client software applications.
