Image Layers

2 approaches:

  1. 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.

  1. 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
