Have you tried to use this gem in your Rails application? https://github.com/sourcepole/ruby_mapscript

From the documentation:

Ruby MapScript API extensions
This gem extends the SWIG MapScript API of UMN MapServer with Ruby-like > iterators and other API methods.

  • thanks! i did see this gem, however it is about 4 years old with only 7 stars, meaning it didnt caught, and i'd like a more "official" way. – dowi Jan 30 '16 at 11:46
