Description

The user should be able to click on a point (and maybe a polygon) with in the
map viewer and have the metdata be displayed for that selected element.

History

#1 Updated by Matthew Perry almost 14 years ago

Queryable map layers can now be selected from the map and the results will appear in a popup window.

The selection mechanism has been designed so that you can draw a box to query or simply click a point. The point-based queries incorporate a few pixels of tolerance so that you don't have to click on the precise pixel.

FYI, the mechanism for communicating b/t client and server goes like this:
1) user clicks map to query which triggers the client to send a request including the query layer and the extents
2) A jsp proxy page recieves this request, passes the request to geoserver's WFS dispatcher.
3) Jsp page transforms the wfs response (a gml document) into html and returns to client.
