1 Web-Based Open Source GIS: Decision Support Tools Explaining the Software Stack Presented by Aaron Racicot – GIS Programmer April 19th, 2006 A Citizen of Salmon Nation

2 Outline Introduction – Personal and Ecotrust Software Stack – Desktop, Web, DST Workflow & Dataflow Raster Tools – Mapserver->GRASS Vector Tools – Mapserver->PostGIS Glue – AJAX, OGR/GDAL,… Installation and tool selection Where is it all going?

Connecting a web request to server side GIS analysis is tricky Real-Time Web Decision Support Tools

9 Data Flow... DSTs (Ecotrust)

10 General PHP Mapscript dl(''); dl(''); $oMap = ms_newMapObj(MAPFILE); // Set the data directory $oMap->set("shapepath", $session_tmp_dir."data"); // Now we need to set the save path and image URL to a session based directory... $oWeb = $oMap->web; $oWeb->set("imagepath",$session_tmp_dir); $oWeb->set("imageurl",$session_tmp_dir); // Explode the x,y extents $box_coords = explode(" ", $http_form_vars["imgbox"]); $point_coords = explode(" ", $http_form_vars["imgxy"]);

11 PHP Mapscript - Zooming // Check if the box is to small and we should just use the x,y if ((abs($box_coords[0] - $box_coords[2]) < 5) && (abs($box_coords[1] - $box_coords[3]) < 5)) { zoomPoint( $oMap, ZOOMOUT_FACTOR, $point_coords[0],$point_coords[1] ); } else { zoomRectangle( $oMap, $box_coords[0], $box_coords[1], $box_coords[2], $box_coords[3] ); }

12 PHP Mapscript - Rendering $img = $oMap->draw(); $url = $img->saveWebImage(); $oMap->scalebar->set("transparent", MS_TRUE); $img_scale = $oMap->drawScaleBar(); $url_scale = $img_scale->saveWebImage(); $oMap->legend->set( "template", APP_PATH."legend_template.html" ); $params = array(); $html_legend = $oMap->processLegendTemplate($params); $img_ref = $oMap->drawReferenceMap(); $url_ref = $img_ref->saveWebImage(); $oMap->save($session_tmp_dir."");
