Hello George,   Try Spatineo

Hello George,
 
Try Spatineo Directory for finiding useful Spatial Web Services. We currently have almost <em>25 000</em> WMS, WFS and WMTS services with almost <em>500 000</em> offered layers or feature types around the globe in the directory and the number is growing each day.
 
We also provide a powerful search engine for finding relevant services using freen text, keywords and data sets spatial boundaries, and a country-based ranking based on the provided service metadata and experienced availabilty.
 
Nobody likes a non-functional service. That's why we also provide availability information for each of these services updated every five minutes.
 
Spatineo Directory is free to use and requires no registration, check it out at <a href="http://directory.spatineo.com/">http://directory.spatineo.com/</a>

Robert, Thank you for

Robert,

Thank you for providing the link to the Inspire Portal and the indication of 27K discoverable services!

Its clear that the 27K are services and not datasets.  Are all 27K services OGC web services or might this also include file download, e.g., ftp services? 

Do you have any way of estimating how many layers or datasets or avaialble from the OGC services?

Some of these services were included in the other discovery services listed above.  Its great to see this INSPIRE resource with such good access to the services.

Thanks again for the comment,

George

Inspire requires  *every* dataset to be exposed by visualisation (WMS) and download (http-get or WFS) service.
So, at least theorically, each one of the 131042 (as of today) datasets is avalaible from an OGC service.
That said, there is an annual report showing the state of play for each member state. Check http://inspire.ec.europa.eu/index.cfm/pageid/182/list/6
