avevo visto sull'altra ml. Molto interessante, però sono sincero, spero che
ne vengano fuori vere novità... Sarebbe bello che si sviluppasse nel senso
di un gis server, più che di un mapserver, che già ne esistono a bizzeffe...

> Dear QGIS developers and users
> I'm happy to announce the start of the 'QGIS mapserver' project:
> http://karlinapp.ethz.ch/qgis_wms/qgis_wms.html
> The idea of QGIS mapserver is simple: instead of using QGIS just as a
> desktop
> GIS, it can also be used as a server. The benefit is that bug fixes and
> extensions for the server also improve desktop GIS (and the other way
> round).
> So no need to develop two different GIS for desktop and server. And
> everything written in plattform independent C++ using the excellent Qt
> library.
> - From a technical point of view, QGIS mapserver is an application linked
> to
> libqgis_gui.so and libqgis_core.so. QGIS mapserver composes a set of
> maplayers according to the client request, the QGIS libraries render
> everything into a QImage (offscreen buffer). The server sends back the
> image
> (as jpg or png) to the client byte by byte. And thanks to Martins clever
> redesign of the QGIS libraries, QGIS mapserver doesn't need a running
> X-server on Unixes.
> QGIS mapserver has been developed at the Institute of Cartography, ETH
> Zurich
> as part of the ORCHESTRA project. On the project page, you'll find a
> link to
> a running instance of QGIS mapserver at our institute and some sample
> requests.
> QGIS mapserver doesn't (yet) have the same number of features as the
> maperservers which are around for many years. But it is already usable as
> a
> basic WMS server with SLD styling capabilities. It already supports
> GetCapabilities and GetMap over HTTP GET and allows client defined styling
> with SLD.
> It also has capabilities that go beyond WMS (in fact that's why it has
> been
> developed): it is possible to send SOAP requests via HTTP Post.
> Additionally
> to the usual predefined data on the server, it is also possible for a
> client
> to embed the data to render dircetly in the message when using SOAP. And
> it
> will be possible to use diagram symbolisation (like bar and pie charts) in
> near future.
> And now the most important thing: QGIS mapserver is opensource (GPL) ->
> everybody is kindly invited to contribute with code, documentation,
> testing,
> bug reports, constructive critisism, etc. Contact me if you are
> interesting
> in joining development of QGIS mapserver, there is still a lot to do...
