The National Water Management Authority has released the first plug-in for the QGIS software called "Wody Polskie - WMS Base". It collects all WMS (Web Map Services) browsing services published by The National Water Management Authority in one place and allows you to load them into QGIS with a single button. To make it easier, the services have been grouped in 6 thematic tabs.
The available thematic tabs:
• Map of the Hydrographic Division of Poland in the scale of 1:10 000 (MPHP10k),
• Update of the Water Management Plans (aPGW),
• Organizational units of The National Water Management Authority (PGWWP Borders),
• Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (WORP),
• Flood Hazard Map (MZP),
• Flood Risk Map (MRP).
The plugin "The National Water Management Authority – WMS Base" can be downloaded from the QGIS repository. In the current version 1.0.1, there are 28 WMS browsing services available, which gives a total of over 400 thematic layers. The author of the tool is Łukasz Ścisłowski – chief specialist in the Department of the Water Management Information System in the National Water Management Board in Warsaw PGW WP.
