Will a server using https://wmts.geo.admin.ch still need to be registered after 1 March 2021 when swisstopo's official data will be available free of charge?

Hi

Will (Android, etc.) app developers be free to use the admin.ch WMTS directly or will they have to get hold of the data and use their own WMTS?

Thanks & regards

Hi David

I am developing Apps for Windows and Android that will have open access to the servers https://wmts.geo.admin.ch and https://wms.geo.admin.ch after 1 March 2021. Is there a possibility to test these apps before 1 March 2021?

Best regards,
Heinrich

Hi David

Thanks for your quick reply. My apps are not web applications. They do not download HTML files from a HTTP server, they have HTML files integrated in their internal storage. I am already testing the Windows version by loading the HTML files from localhost instead of the internal storage. But I do not know how to implement localhost on an Android phone or an emulator? Could you allow access to https://wmts.geo.admin.ch and https://wms.geo.admin.ch from a local HTML file?

Best regards, Heinrich

Best regards

Hi,

For testing my Windows and Android Apps I am successfully loading HTML files from a registered domain, as you suggested. But for the final versions, to be released after 1 March 2021, I would like to load the HTML files from a local file, i.e. no referrer will be sent in HTTPS requests to wmts.geo.admin.ch and and wms.geo.admin.ch servers. I asked geo...@swisstopo.ch whether this will be possible, but they have not answered my question, may be you can? Will it be possible, after 1 March 2021, to use the wmts and wms servers without a referrer, e.g. by double clicking a local HTML file on a Windows PC?

Best regards,
Heinrich

No referrer will be required after 1.3.2021 to access wmts.geo.admin.ch

Wms.geo.admin.ch is already free…

Hello David,

I have noticed that wmts.geo.admin.ch is already free. Can I rely on that and publish my apps that use the wmts server without a referrer?

Thanks and best regards,
Heinrich

Hi

WMTS referre protection has been removed and will stay removed. Officially free usage is from 1.3 onward.

What are the server address sets we should use? wmts.geo.admin.ch or wmts100.geo.admin.ch? Others?

Hi Dave,
from what I see,

- wmts.geo.admin.ch
- wmts[0-24].geo.admin.ch
- wmts[100-104].geo.admin.ch

all point to the same cloudfront distribution.

I am extremely pleased to see that cloudfront is now used for all without restrictions. Well done!

Keep up the nice job,
best regards,

Andrea
