10. Creating Static Maps > 10.3. Setting Output Image Formats

Setting Output Image Formats

MapServer can produce map images, legends, and scale bars in different image formats. Throughout this chapter, the PNG format is shown in the examples because it is the default image format. MapServer packages can have different default image formats. PNG format is commonly supported by many MapServer packages, but in some cases MapServer may not be able to produce PNG files or doesn’t produce them by default.

Tip

MapServer can be compiled using many different options. The term “MapServer package” refers to the set of programs, e.g., shp2img, that you are using. The capabilities of these programs depend on how they are compiled. Some packages will have more features enabled than others.
