Interoperability is increasingly becoming a focus point for organizations that
distribute and share data over the Internet. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)
focuses on the development of publicly available geospatial web standards. MapServer
currently supports numerous OGC specifications, allowing users to publish their data
services in an interoperable manner. This workshop will review the OGC specs
supported in MapServer as well as provide information on implementation options and
issues, as well as what the future holds for OGC support in MapServer.
You MUST be familiar with basic MapServer concepts to do this workshop. This
workshop assumes you are comfortable with:
- Writing and working with mapfiles
- Connecting various data types
- Working with templates, fonts, symbols, legends, scalebars, etc.
