ArcGIS/ArcView symbols to SLD files

Eduin Carrillo
Hello list.

I'm moving all my WMS services from MapServer to Geoserver, but creating SLD
files manually to every shapefile will take a long time..

Somebody know any tool to automatize the process of translating ArcView or
ArcGIS symbols to SLD files?

I'm thinking to include this feature in the next version of "Gix Export Tool"
taking some code base of "view to mapserver" scripts.

Thanks

Yes.  Just out of curiosity, why are you changing from MapServer to
GeoServer for WMS?  I mean, don't get me wrong, I love GeoServer, but
I'm hugely biased.  I'm just wondering what your specific reasons are.

Unfortunately I know of none, but if you find them or anyone knows of
them, please let the list know, I'd love to be able to put it in the docs.

That would be _great_.  I'll happily through up some good links pointing
people towards the tool, I'm sure it would be a popular capabilities.
And indeed being able to export SLD means that any project that supports
SLD would be able to use it.  uDig is the foremost in my mind, and
indeed it'd probably be very little work to get a 'project' in uDig, in
addition to the style through SLD.  It'd also be able to work with
Deegree, since they fully support SLD, and indeed MapServer supposedly
does SLD as well.  And also commercial servers such as RedSpider and
Cubewerx.  Definitely the nice thing about standards...

best regards, and keep us posted on any progress with the Gix Export
Tool.  When you get it going I'm sure we can send some beta testers your
way.

Chris

Je je. Yeah, I'm user of Mapserver for a long time ago, and I love it. But I
have my reasons:

1. Composing all related terms (metadata ogc_ wms_ wfs_) for WMS and WFS into
mapfiles requires "a lot" of effort. You will say "hey, you are the author of
Gix, just customize Gix, export your ArcView views and Voila!", but in spite
of, I prefer Geoserver as "Server" and MapServer as "Client" of WMS/WFS/WCS
services. With a few click I can add and remove services and this changes are
reflected in real time to my clients.

2. I will use WMS to server data for remote clients and WFS for local users
(WFS-T for administrative task, editing, etc..) Why duplicate efforts
configuring WMS with MapServer and WFS with Geoserver?

3. I prefer Geoserver structure of WMS/WFS services. Single NameSpaces with sub
datastores and sub entities... this way is more clear for users to find what
they need. With MapServer I need to provide multiple "getCapabilities" URLs for
every MapFile...

Making SLD files for every shapefile is now the only restriction to move all my
services to geoserver...

OK. It's the time for a new version of Gix, and export SLD files will be  great
feature. Thanks Chris.

Re: ArcGIS/ArcView symbols to SLD files

Chris Holmes-2
Completely randomly I just came across this pdf:
http://deegree.org/latlon/latlon/produktblaetter/deegree_web-map-service_en.pdf

Which seems to indicate that something in deegree can convert from
ArcView Legend files into SLD.  You may ask the deegree user list, or
just dig into their site a bit more.  At the very least there may be
some code you can make use of...

Re: ArcGIS/ArcView symbols to SLD files

Bart van den Eijnden (OSGIS)
In reply to this post by Eduin Carrillo
Eduin,

maybe I have missed something, but what I don't get is: gix can export
Arcview to Mapserver CLASSES or not? In Mapscript there is a function
which can generate SLD from CLASSES:

string generateSLD()
        Returns an SLD XML string based on all the classes found in the layers.

So this way you can generate the SLD's or not to use with Geoserver?

Best regards,
Bart
