In 2013, a new service type joined the deegree family - the deegree Web Map Tile Service. This deegree service implements the OGC WMTS 1.0.0 specification and is going to be the OGC reference implementation for this specification. Both, the OGC WMTS test suite and deegree's candidate reference implementation have been developed within the OGC OWS-9 initiative. The intention for implementing WMTS was that deegree had no clear strategy to handle big raster data. As a result, one of the advantages of deegree WMTS is the performant handling of big raster data - such as aerial images - and providing it through a standard-compliant interface. Additionally there is advanced support for using other web services based on OGC WMS and WMTS such as GeoServer, GeoWebCache and Mapserver as datasource for deegree's tiling API, which is the underlying data access layer of the WMTS. As a key feature deegree is capable of proxying FeatureInfo output from those remote services. The presentation will give an overview about deegree WMTS and all its capabilities, especially regarding the interfaces with other OSGeo components.
