Hello Maning,

Yes... I would like to receive your contributions (ps.map files).

This looks interesting.

This is a point where we need someone with a good experience on it to

Yes, this is true.

Markus... I will use the Wiki, ok?

Let's make this way... I will organize the "cookbook" this way (plus
with the ideas from Maning)

1) Short description how ps.map works (concept);
2) One or two simple scripts (to newbies have a startup);
3) Some advanced scripts;

For the complex/advanced scripts my idea is do something similar to
the Mapserver books from Tyler M. and Bill K. (I have both :-D)...
build a long ps.map file step-by-step. To make it clear what each part
is really doing, and how customize it.


Best regards,

PS: Thanks Hamish and Moritz for the contributions!
