Filed used my the Metacat Spatial Option. Generally these files represent
the portion of the spatial option that harvests spatial elements from a
Metacat, and stores the elements as a shapefile on the file system. This
option, at this point, is pretty much independent of the metacat application.
This system requires Mapserver, and is run as a cron job.
metacat_to_shapefile.sh -- script that is called by the cron job and uses the
following code to create a shapefile with the spatial elements in the respective
get_eml.pl -- connects to metacat and gets the spatial location data as points.
metacat_shapefile -- linux binary to write the shapefile
