10. Creating Static Maps > 10.1. MapServer Utilities

MapServer Utilities

MapServer comes with much more than the standard mapserv executable file. The following programs are compiled at the same time as the mapserv file and are usually included in any MapServer installation package. MapServer is more than just a web mapping program. To demonstrate this, the chapter begins with an introduction to some command-line tools. They can be used as standalone applications for making maps without a web server. Details about each program are included.

legend

Creates a graphic image of a legend based on the symbols used to draw layers specified in a map file.

scalebar

Produces a graphic image of a scalebar based on the options in a map file, using the map extent as set in the map file.
