I'm having difficulty troubleshooting why a number of my mapfile layers aren't rendering. I'm a GIS noob, so I'm probably missing something obvious and apologize in advance; I just don't know where else to turn to.
I built a map project in QGIS and arranged the layers how I'd like; everything displays fine there. But when I attempt to query MapServer for those same layers, only some of them are rendering.
To illustrate, here's an example of how I'm using the mapfile:
MAP NAME "WASHINGTON_COUNTY" SIZE 800 600 EXTENT 721132.369589 1497660.070845 825840.827167 1814625.359158 UNITS METERS SHAPEPATH "geo" TEMPLATEPATTERN "washington" IMAGECOLOR 255 255 255 IMAGETYPE PNG WEB HEADER templates/header.html TEMPLATE "set in index.html" FOOTER templates/footer.html MINSCALE 1000 MAXSCALE 2550000 IMAGEPATH "C:/ms4w/tmp/ms_tmp/" IMAGEURL "/ms_tmp/" END LAYER NAME tiger_counties DATA "tiger_counties" STATUS OFF TYPE POLYGON CLASS NAME "county" STYLE COLOR 200 200 200 OUTLINECOLOR 222 222 222 END END END LAYER NAME ny_washington_centerlines DATA "ny/washington/centerlines" STATUS OFF TYPE LINE CLASS NAME "road" STYLE COLOR 255 255 0 OUTLINEWIDTH 1 OUTLINECOLOR 0 0 0 END END END END
And here's the image rendered from the query string:
Now here's a map of the same region, as rendered in QGIS:
What is QGIS doing by default that MapServer doesn't?
