Getting Started with MapServer
This hands-on workshop is intended as an introduction to Web mapping with the
University of Minnesota MapServer. The participants will go through the process of
setting up a MapServer environment which includes configuring a Web server and
creating a MapServer application. The creation of a MapServer application will
include step-by-step examples of building a map file, including defining the WEB
object, the LAYER objects, and assigning symbology to these objects. Once a map file
is created, the participants will then go through the process of creating a web-based
interface. Important MapServer and Web mapping concepts will be discussed throughout
the workshop. A significant portion of the workshop will involve accessing data from
several different data types and incorporating them into a MapServer map file.
