Subject Ann: CouchMaps
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2011 23:53:21 GMT
I am pleased to announce CouchMaps which is a simple wrapper around
MapServer ( to enable

   * Existing MapServer map files to be converted to JSON format
   * MapServer map files to be edited in JSON and stored in CouchDB
   * MapServer to be managed and run in an Erlang OTP supervision process
   * GDAL CouchDB OGR driver to serve GeoJSON directly from CouchDB as
a WFS or rendered through WMS

MapServer is an Open Source platform for publishing spatial data and
interactive mapping applications to the web.

The code is available here

Mainly this leverages the great work by the GDAL and MapServer communities.

I have included sample data and a walk through of making WFS and WMS
queries (

My employer, ITT VIS, enabled the release of
this code and donated my time to this development.

Many thanks,


p.s. I would like to make this work with CouchDB trunk, but GeoCouch
is using an API that is pending approval to CouchDB trunk so currently
it uses CouchOne.
