Subject CGI mapping portal
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2005 15:18:55 GMT
Hello everyone,

I would really like to get a well known internet mapping software called
MapServer working as a portlet. MapServer is an open source cgi program
written in C. It plugs right into the Apache servers cgi-bin directory.
There is a map file that is configured to read local or database driven
spatial data and an html template similar to Velocity that defines the
layout of the map, scalebar, legend, and reference map.

Since it is commonly installed in Apache I would be tempted to create a
portlet that serves as a proxy to Apache. Any clues on how to do this? I
would be interested in contributing the result.
