Our 2ct for the Integration Showcase:

PS. I am really hoping that anyone good at MapServer will take a run at 
the problem.


We are interested in consuming WMS and WFS services in our application Mapbender. We do not need the Online Resources or FeatureTypes of the services now because we want to add the services during the FOSS4G2007 Integration Showcase. 


Unfortunately the Mapbender workshop W-03 is at the same time that Jeff and 
MapStorer lab and during the whole conference at the OSGeo booth. Potentially 
the outcome of a previous workshop could be this WMS... (dream on).

We share Jody's hope that someone from the MapServer community is actually setting up a WMS for or during FOSS4G. 

For example W05:  
Tom Kralidis

Environmennt Canada
Daniel Morissette
MapGears

Additionally we hope that someone from the GeoServer community will do the same for a WFS-T. 


[W07] Introduction to Geospatial Collaboration using Geoserver
Chris Holmes
The Open Planning Project

And so on.

The WhereGroup will contribute a generic GeoServer WFS-T with the Canadian SRS 
so that people can add notes, make appointments in Victoria during the 
conference and so on. At the start of the conference we let the url out of the 
bag.

The integration success is if gvSIG and MapBuilder and uDIG can all write to 
the same WFS. A corresponding map is generated by a MapServer WMS that looks 
into the same database. Anybody at FOSS4G who can consume these WMS and WFS has 
access to these feature types and maps and make appointments and view them and 
send them to others with the tools of her choice.

If everybody simply uses the same data and makes sure that what they do is well documented by EduCom then a life OSGeo SDI with documentation and curriculum will evolve. Some tidying can be done during the Friday Developers Code Sprint. 

Sounds like a cool conference that I am looking very much forward to. 31 days to go. 

Best regards, 
Arnulf

[OSGeo-Discuss] Demo Theatre / Intergration Showcase interaction

I can answer this one - the Demonstration Theater is a venue for running 
demos (similar to the presentations program). Demos slots are 10 mins in 
length and you need to bring your own laptop. The room is located right 
next to the food - and should be packed during the coffee and lunch breaks.


I would be more than happy for people providing demos to make use of the 
integration showcase data and services (it will really help people focus 
on the differences in software they are being shown).


A great deal more information is available here:
- http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/FOSS4G2007_Demos

I am currently taking a waiting list, and if there is enough interest 
another block of demo slots will be opened up. If you are interesting in 
giving a demo please send an email to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

I will be throwing up a GeoServer instance on the demo server. I like
the idea of throwing together some live tables that people can edit via
wfs with the various clients and publish via wms. The appointment
scenario is a good one to start with. I will update the wiki with the
connection info.

Hi Daniel,

I have a mapserver instance installed on the same server running the
postgis database. I am using it to publish some raster data via WMS at
the moment. Probably use it to serve up some dem data as well.

It is not listed on the site because I was thinking that someone else
would probably be coming along and throw one up.

But we can definitely keep it running in order to participate in the
showcase. A volunteer (more experienced with mapserver then myself :) )
to help setup some nice map files would be welcomed.

 It's a real shame that MapServer is not represented in the Integration
 Showcase (http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/FOSS4G2007_IntegrationShowcase)
 
 I didn't realize that until just now.
 
 Sorry to break your hopes, but the OGC Workshop (W-05) is not currently
 planning to produce the WMS service based on the showcase data that
 you're dreaming of. I guess we could/should rework it to do that, but I
 don't think I have the time.
 
 My big problem is time... I'd love to see a MapServer WMS in the
 showcase and I really think that we're missing the boat if there is not
 one, but I have already got way too much stuff on my plate and cannot
 undertake that. I mean I could hack together a quick mapfile, but what
 we'd need is a mapfile that makes the data look really good and shows
 the real power of MapServer... and that will take time.
 
 There are hundreds of MapServer users out there who could contribute
 that bit. If there is anyone interested in setting up WMS services based
 on the showcase data then please speak up.
 
 Daniel

Arnulf, good idea to have a WFS-T we can all connect to. How about we 
publish the URL before the demo so that we can set up and test our 
clients, then reset the data at the start of the conference. (Mike Adair 
is setting up a Mapbuilder client.)

I just threw up a GeoServer instance and updated the wiki page.

http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/FOSS4G2007_IntegrationShowcase#GeoServer

Currently it is only publishing a single dataset, an appointments
dataset as Arnulf suggested. Let he brainstorming begin about what kind
of live datasets we want to setup and I can do the GeoServer
configuration accordingly.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Integration test bed thingy at FOSS4G

2007-08-24 Thread Justin Deoliveira

 A MapServer WMS is probably, just like the database itself, one of the
 backend services that should be hosted on the main server and have its
 URL published as early as possible so that others can build their demos
 against it.
 
 

 But we can definitely keep it running in order to participate in the
 showcase. A volunteer (more experienced with mapserver then myself :) )
 to help setup some nice map files would be welcomed.

 
 Which version of MapServer are you currently running, probably 4.10?
 Would it be an option to also install a recent 5.0 beta with AGG support
 (with some help)?
Yes 4.10. I will grab the latest 5.0 beta and see if i can compile it.
 
 Hopefully we can make that a MapServer community effort and if Paul (who
 just replied saying he'd also be interested) and/or myself setup a
 strawman mapfile others from the community can contribute enhancements
 to it to make the default map output (without SLD) look real good.
 
 
 This is probably becoming off-topic for this list, is there another
 better place where we could continue that discussion with interested
 parties?
Agreed. I will talk to Paul R about possible setting up a mail list for
the integration showcase... if there is not already one.
