Geography and MapServer04 Nov 2009
Can you use the new PostGIS
GEOGRAPHY type with MapServer? Yes! Just make sure your LAYER declares a geographic projection (e.g.
"init=epsg:4326", or "proj=lonlat") so the correct coordinates are passed in. For simple DATA definitions(e.g.
DATA "thegeog from thetable"), that’s all you have to do. I haven’t tested out more complex DATA statements yet, but I am pretty sure they should work fine.
