I am new to Mapguide , working on it for my summer Internship.I have Installed it perfectly. Now the task is to load vector data and Raster data in map Guide (mainly have to load *.shp files and *.tif files). I have find not much resource that provide exact steps. Also I don't know where to put data files ? In Repository or somewhere else ? How to link these file ? Can any one help me in this?
