Picture 4 - Creating your first instance

It is possible to base your new instance on already existing ones, yours and pre-defined ones. Basing new instance on others results with transferring existing layers’ configuration to the new instance. A useful feature, when you are interested in, for example, creating WMS from Sentinel-2 image. Upon selecting a desired reference instance, set of pre-configured layers is loaded onto the new one.

However, if you choose not to base your instance on existing ones, you are able to configure new layers from the scratch.

First thing to do, when creating new WMS, is to set up your new instance, accordingly to your needs. It is possible form page shown hereunder.

Configuration of new instance

To choose the area you are interested in, select green “edit” button, right below “instance configuration’ label. Once it is done, a pop-up screen should appear. On this screen you can choose your desired area, as in the example below. After selecting your area of interest, confirm it with “OK’ button.

Area editor

Now you are able to add and configure layers for your WMS. Page below presents an example of a layer configuration. It is possible to preview all layers, from the configurator level, to review the results of the configuration.

After finishing desired set up, it is possible to review it in Sentinel Playground or you can save it to your instance, copy WMS URL and use it in qGIS, Google Earth or other applications of your choice.
