  2. I ca’t help with the GDAL/Mapserver issue but I’m curious about the OWSProxy implementation.. it’s a pure client implementation? did u extend the OL WCS/WFS parsers to achieve this?

  3. Pedro, the OWSProxy is Python-MapServer-GDAL-based server-side application, which sits on the server. It get’s something like:


    In this case (works for WFS as well), it parsers the Capabilities from WCS (WFS) and translates it to WMS Capabilities. Than it transforms WMS GetMap into WCS GetCoverage and WFS GetFeature.

    So than you can run any WMS client on top of it. It’s going to support time (see the blogpost), filter encoding, SLD and other stuff, you usually need to display a map.

    And I hope, we will opensource it soon ;-)

  4. The answer is probably: via VRT driver.

    gdalbuildvrt accepts subdatasets as input, so you can generate VRT file (XML file) which is then readable via MapServer (or any other GDAL-based software).

    Hope it helps,
