The city of Vienna has started their open data initiative. They’re offering data on a variety of topics, including: infrastructure, population, education, environment and traffic.
For use in GIS, they serve the data through WMS and WFS:
- WMS: http://data.wien.gv.at/daten/wms?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&version=1.1.1
- WFS 1.0: http://data.wien.gv.at/daten/wfs?service=WFS&request=GetCapabilities&version=1.0.0
- WFS 1.1: http://data.wien.gv.at/daten/wfs?service=WFS&request=GetCapabilities&version=1.1.0
Both WMS and WFS work well with the developer version of QGIS.
Looking forward to new datasets. Announcements should be published via RSS feed.
