WMS to DWG Conversion

We present a list of valuable resources, featuring comprehensive guides and expert advice for converting WMS images to DWG format using our converters. Explore them now to expedite your WMS images conversion later.


WMS Web Map Service

A protocol for delivering geospatial data as map images over the Internet. It has the following features:

  • OGC Standard: The protocol was developed by the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium), an international organization that promotes interoperability among geospatial technologies. WMS is one of the OGC standards that define how to request and exchange geospatial data over the Internet.
  • Map Images: The data that are transferred by WMS are georeferenced map images, which are raster images that show the spatial features and attributes of a geographic area. These images are generated by a map server, such as MapGuide or MapServer, using data stored in a GIS (Geographic Information System) database. The map images can be customized by specifying parameters such as the spatial extent, the coordinate system, the image format, the layer selection, the style, etc.
  • WMS to CAD Converter: Automapki Application is an add-on for AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD, which supports WMS data. It allows you to import WMS images into your DWG drawings. You can seamlessly combine multiple WMS layers from different sources and insert them into a georeferenced DWG drawing. This enables you to integrate geospatial data with your CAD designs and visualize them in a map context.

DWG 2D/3D CAD Drawing

A binary file format that stores CAD drawings and models, created by Autodesk for AutoCAD. Some of the benefits and features of DWG files are:

  • Compatibility: DWG files are compatible with other software packages, such as ZWCAD, BricsCAD, and IntelliCAD, which also support the DWG format. This makes DWG files the industry standard in CAD.
  • DWG Drawing Converters: DWG drawings can be easily converted into various 3D and GIS file formats, such as OBJ, STL, DXF, KML, and KMZ, using our add-ons, Automesher Application and Automapki Application. This enables you to share your AutoCAD designs with different platforms and applications.
