The Demo page contains a listing of all layers known to GeoWebCache and the valid services associated with them. This information is set in the file
geowebcache.xml. To edit layer settings read the section on Configuring Layers.
For each layer and depending on settings, there will be a link to built-in OpenLayers demos for every projection and image format supported. If EPSG:4326 (lat/lon) is supported by a particular layer, there will also be links to KML output, for display in Google Earth.

<GEOWEBCACHE_URL>- URL to the GeoWebCache instance
<LAYER_NAME>- Name of the layer as known to GeoWebCache (
<GRID_SET>- Name of the grid set as known in GeoWebCache (
