Sorry, I have so little time on my own that I spend it making missions and flying them... I might get back to work during the incoming Christmas holidays.

OK, I wasn't motivated enough to resume my work on the MapServer thing. But some insisting user asked me for a vector data or too, so... here's the whole vector data! All of those are my work, except for the MGRS grids.

Please feel free to make maps with those vector files, as long as you don't make money out of it.

I got two days off. Time to get back to my web service project. This morning, I was able to:
  • see my map through OpenLayers,
  • use a specific projection (Web Mercator),
  • add labels
For now, I'm not able to display my sweet sweet shaded relief TIFF image, and I don't know why. But now that I'm aware of OpenLayers having its own Shaded Relief filter, I feel relieved.

Here's where I'm at:

Looking forward to the release!
Nice to see some progress.
But take your time and don't feel rushed.

Here, that's more like it.
Now I need to find a way to shorten the loading time of both the shaded relief layer and the isolines layer. I'll try to use tiling.

I found a way to optimize the shaded relief layer! I made a TMS out of it. It is now loading faster than the vector layers.

My next tasks are:
1. redo the TMS with a lesser min-zoom and a greater max-zoom
2. try to blend most of the vector layers with the TMS (urban areas, vegetation, water, rivers, isolines...) so it loads way faster
3. add a search engine (town name, coordinates, MGRS area...)

Then I'll try to find a way to host the map somewhere on the Internet.
