We are trying to run the MapServer SOS example at this link. However, we don´t know how to configure the data parameter in the mapfile.

What do we have to set in mapfile´s data parameter?

We need to relate the PostGis database with MapServer, and we don´t how. Any help with that?


Here are some examples on the MapServer configuration with a SOS server.
