WMS Tiling Cache support in gvSIG Project

Aim of the project

WMS_Tile_Caching has been defined within OSGeo, with a WMS_Tiling_Client_Recommendation. The aim of the proposal is to add WMS Tiling Cache support to gvSIG, in order to allow the loading of this kind of layers (WMS-Cache).

Planned Timeline


  1. First designing raster tile support in gvSIG core.
  2. Adding a new renderer on the same Map Control.
  3. It should be defined the way a tile layer is going to be integrated with the rest of layers, attending to discrete zoom levels.
  4. Management of multiple tile layers with possibly different zoom levels.
