Refine Your Search

Refine Search by Text

Your initial search may return hundreds or even thousands of layers. Scanning all these layers to find the most relevant one could take a long time. You need to refine your search.

  1. Refine your search to receive only layers that include sea surface temperature.

    layers = wmsfind('temperature');
    sst = layers.refine('sea surface');

  2. Refine the search again to include only layers that contain the term "global."

    global_sst = sst.refine('global');

Refine Search by Geographic Limits

You can search for layers in a specific geographic area.

  1. First, find hurricane layers.

    layers = wmsfind('hurricane');
    
  2. Refine your search by selecting layers that are in the western hemisphere.

    western_hemisphere = layers.refineLimits ...
       ('Latlim',[-90 90], 'Lonlim', [-180 0]);
    
  3. Refine again to include only layers in the western hemisphere that include temperature data.

    temp_and_west = western_hemisphere.refine('temperature');
