Inline MapServer Features

Synopsis

Inline features refer to coordinates entered directly into the map file. They aren’t a file or database format and don’t require any DATA or CONNECTION parameters. Instead they use a FEATURE section to define the coordinates.

Inline features can be used to define points, lines, and polygons as if taken from an external file; this requires direct entry of coordinate pairs in the map file using a particular syntax.

Data access/connection method

This is a native MapServer option that doesn’t use any external libraries to support it.

Map file example

Each FEATURE..END section defines a feature.

Points

Multiple points can be defined in a FEATURE section. If multiple points are defined in the same layer, they have the same CLASS settings; for example, for colors and styles.
