Implementing the WMS GetLegendGraphic request with MapServer.

Posted by – Thursday 2012-05-10

UNM’s MapServer supports the WMS request GetLegendGraphic, which according to the WMS specification is not mandatory [note 1].

Fortunately, configuring MapServer to get the WMS server returning the legend graphic for each layer is easy. Unfortunately, the manual section explaining how to do it seems, at least to me, a bit hidden; here is the link: http://bit.ly/Kp3xQx.


notes

[note 1] While UNM’s MapServer – which is free and open source software – as of version 5.2.1, released in January 2009, supported the GetLegendGraphic request, ArcGIS Server – commercial software – did not do it (http://bit.ly/JCcynz) until version 10, released circa October 2011.
