    OSGeo 소식 2012. 11. 16. 15:51

    The MapServer Team is pleased to announce the long awaited release of MapServer 6.2.0 after an extensive beta phase.

    This is the first joint release between MapServer 6.2, TinyOWS 1.1, and MapCache 1.0, and is the first step towards a fully-fledged MapServer “Suite” integrating these 3 components.

    Major features for 6.2 include:

    * MapServer 6.2 is INSPIRE View Service compliant, i.e. supports

      the provision of an INSPIRE View Service compliant WMS Server.

    * Mask Layers: Mask layers are used to “mask out” part of a given

      layer, to only represent data that intersect features from another


    * Precise Symbol Placement: Traditionally, MapServer centers a marker

      symbol on the point it should be rendered to. ANCHORPOINT is a new

      SYMBOL level keyword that describes where the given symbol should

      be anchored.

    * Complex Multi Label/Symbol Symbology: Some cartographic representations

      require juxtaposing multiple symbols and/or labels in order to obtain

      a complex final symbol.

    * Vector Fields: MapServer can render vector fields based off data from

      GDAL supported raster formats containing u and v bands.

    * Label Leader Offsetting: For densely labelled maps, MapServer now

      supports offseting a label with respect to it’s original anchorpoint

      if the original location resulted in a collision with an already

      present label. An optional line can also be rendered to link the

      rendered text to it’s original feature location.

    * Multiple Font Support: List a set of true type fonts to search for

      required characters.

    * SVG Symbology: Along with the traditional ELLIPSE, VECTOR, PIXMAP

      and TRUETYPE symbols, MapServer 6.2 now supports SVG symbols directly.

    Full details and download information can be found in the MapServer 6.2 release announcement.
