Ticket #1145 (closed enhancement: invalid)
Create new query type to return point/box lat/longs from map
|Reported by:||Trevor.Tracey-Patte@…||Owned by:||sdlime|
We have modified the source code of MapServer to use a new query type (which we have called querygeom) that does not query the layers but returns the map data (ie maplat/lon, minlat/lon, maxlat/lon) to the WEB EMPTY template in the map file (regardless of whether any layers are selected or not). The point/box selected on the map is then passed to our database for processing via the EMPTY template. We would like to have this functionality included in the source code for MapServer so that we do not have to add it each time we do an upgrade. This new query type provides added functionality and does not prevent the use of the standard query types (nquery, nquerybox).
