MapServer 2008 SoC Ideas

Enter ideas for development projects here. Note these are just suggestions - students are welcome to propose projects based on their own interests that relate to MapServer.

Support for reading SVG symbols

Add support for SVG as an alternate method to define vector symbols in a MapServer symbolset.

Other Ideas:

The following MapServer-dev thread outlines a few possible ideas, without providing much details: [http://www.nabble.com/Google-Summer-of-Code-Ideas-tf3370598.html]

REMOVED ideas:

Add support for KML output to MapServer (for use with Google Earth)

IMPORTANT: KML output in MapServer used to be on the list of ideas but is needed in MapServer 5.0 by an organization that will likely fund it before the summer (before 5.0), so it has been taken out of the list.

Mentor Candidates

The following individuals are potentially willing to serve as MapServer mentors.
