- Use a WMS Server
Ideally this would be integrated so that the user would see this as an Image layer even if the backend did it via WMS.
- Use OpenLayers.Layer.Image
Can optionally use gdal2tiles to split a large image into Tiles for beter performance.
We can include access to True Marble as a useful base/sample.
- TrueMarble.32km.1350x675.tif actually included in the tree, with a script to download higher resolutions
If an old map then may wish to include a Rectifer
