Hi Brent,

One way to do it is through the URL.

The layers are now remembered there ( as well as bbox/scale):


Jim has done quite a bit of work with setting default settings for GeoMoose via Apache as well.  We have a default MapFile set up for example that has a set of default layers set to “on”.

I believe the Google basemapping has been a problem to work with recently without a Google Map Key, and it’s been purposely left out of the demo.

Hey all,

I'm experimenting with map backgrounds in 3.0. 

Is it possible to use Google maps as a background?

Is it possible to use radio buttons instead of check boxes?   I've tried using
    <group title="Backgrounds" expand="true" multiple="false">
but it doesn't work.

Can I set a background layer on by default (e.g. status="on")?


Best Regards,
