Is it possible to configure the mapfile so, that it shows for every point on the map a different picture from the web recognized by an id?

  • Every feature in a layer will have it's own identifier, so the question is I think more about attaching some image to every feature in your database. My feeling is that it should be doable either through use of SYMBOL (probably OK for small datasets) , or STYLEITEM – nmtoken Feb 11 '16 at 19:42

I found a sollution to my problem: You can use an URL for the SYMBOL. We have the URL with the specific image in our database. In the mapfile we just use then the name of the attribute with the URL for the SYMBOL in the mapfile. See: mapserver docu
