Geodata of Tajikistan as WebServices (WFS and WMS)

Web services allows the simple distribution of (geo-)data using OGC standards. Geodata distributed as as WebFeatureService (WFS), WebMapService (WMS), WebCoverageService (WCS) and KeyholeMarkupLanguage (KML) alows the user to integrate the data directly in all different kind of GIS software products (such as ArcGIS, Quantum GIS, gvSIG, … and even GoogleEarth) without having the data locally stored.
