Shapefile Layers

Build a .map file for MapServer using Python MapScript

  • Q: Are we better-off supporting GeoServer? (MapFish & OpenGeo do this. GeoServer uses OL as native preview)

Build a layer which accesses this via WMS (although it should appear to be different from user-perspective as it references local data)

Q: Can we rely on GDAL/OGR 1.6 & thus keep the Shapefiles zipped?

We can include TM_WORLD_BORDERS-0.3.zip as a useful base/sample

An option should be provided to store uploaded data in PostGIS, if this is available.

Q: Is it worth having an Import option for Shapefiles too?
i.e. create Internal Features from this data.
