Adding Trap.NZ Layers to Arc Desktop

Trap NZ provides OGC Web Feature Services (WFS) layers. The base URL for this service is:
https://trap.nz/wms/features/[your project id]

To use these with Arc Desktop you need the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension installed. If installed you should see an option to add an Interoperability Connection in the Catalog Tree

  1. Double-click Add Interoperability Connection. Under Format, select WFS (Web Feature Service), and then add the URL as above (the project ID is the node number that you can get from the URL after selecting the project in Trap.NZ. )
