What is a WMS Service?
A Web Map Service (WMS) is a technology that allows you to retrieve GIS data direct from us over the internet, and display the data as a raster image in your own GIS applications.
This innovation is based on a specification from the Open GIS Consortium (OGC).

What is a WFS Service?
A Web Feature Service (WFS) is a technology that allows you to retrieve GIS data direct from us over the internet, and display the data in your own GIS applications.
WFS is similar to WMS which allows a client to overlay map images from multiple services over the internet.
But while a WMS Server provides raster based maps, a WFS Server provides raw coordinate data that the client uses to produce a map.
This innovation is based on a specification from the Open GIS Consortium (OGC)
