> Hi all,
> I have a site that uses mapserver wms to generate tiles which overlay
> on top of a google map. I would like to make the mapserver tiles
> user-customizable, so that the wms call can return a map that
> reflects a query (for example a map that shows several but not all of
> the species in the postgre database, or just records from specific
> years). The reason I am overlaying the mapserver tiles on the google
> map is that we have too many points for the google api to plot, and
> it is much faster this way.
> Can php/mapserver be used to generate custom wms such as this? If
> so, is there a good tutorial on how to do it?
> If not, does anyone have any better suggestions of how to generate
> customized wms layers from a postgre database?
> many thanks,
