Tutorial: Building fast, flexible and secured WMS/TMS services with MapProxy
Oliver Tonnhofer, Omniscale GmbH & Co KG
MapProxy is an open source proxy for geospatial data. It caches, accelerates and transforms data from existing map services and serves any desktop or web GIS client. MapProxy offers tiled services similar to TileCache and GeoWebCache, but it offers a lot more functionality for systems that goes beyond a simple tile cache. This tutorial shows the installation and the basic configuration of MapProxy. Attendees will lern how to: - setup a cascaded WMS service that supports on-the-fly repojection, LegendGraphic and FeatureInfo requests, XSL transformation of FeatureInfo responses - limit WMS sources to polygon boundaries - configure tile caches and use these in OpenLayers or any regular WMS client - fill the cache with the advanced seeding tool - extend services with flexible authentication and authorization. Attendees can follow the tutorial instructions and test the configuration with a local test WMS server from the presenter.
