General Information about the release-1916-gdal-mapserver.zip package

This package contains all the required files to successfully run MapServer and GDAL related applications on Windows. The files are organized according to the following directory layout:

  • \bin - Contains the common dll files.
  • \bin\gdal - Contains the GDAL related directories.
  • \bin\gdal\apps - GDAL utilities and OGR utilities.
  • \bin\gdal\csharp - Compiled binary files of the GDAL/OGR CSharp bindings.
  • \bin\gdal\java - Compiled binary files of the GDAL/OGR Java bindings.
  • \bin\gdal\python - Compiled binary files of the GDAL/OGR Python bindings.
  • \bin\gdal\plugins - GDAL plugin dll-s.
  • \bin\ms - Binary files of the MapServer related directories.
  • \bin\ms\apps - MapServer utilities.
  • \bin\ms\csharp - Compiled binary files of the MapScript CSharp bindings.
  • \bin\ms\java - Compiled binary files of the MapScript Java bindings.
  • \bin\ms\python - Compiled binary files of the MapScript Python bindings.
  • \bin\ms\plugins - MapServer plugin dll-s.
  • \bin\proj\apps - Contains the Proj.4 related utilities.
  • \doc - Contains package and version information files.
  • changelog.txt - Text file about the package changes.

General Installation Notes

In order to run the utility programs the compiled dll-s should be available to load during the execution. Therefore the PATH environment parameter should contain the full path to /bin directory of the package or the dlls in this directory should be copied into the directory from which the application (executable) is running

Installing the GDAL/OGR plugins

Some of the GDAL/OGR drivers/data sources have been compiled as plugin dlls located in the \bin\gdal\plugins subdirectory. When executing the GDAL/OGR related applications the plugins should be available to load by the driver manager. For this reason the corresponding dll-s should be copied into a \gdalplugins subdirectory from where the application executable is running. As an alternative solution the GDAL_DRIVER_PATH could also be set to point to the location of the plugin dll-s.

Note: When using the Oracle and SDE plugins be sure that the client libraries have been installed in the environment previously.

Using the MapServer plugins

The mapserver plugin dll-s can be found in the \bin\ms\plugins subdirectory. In order to use the plugins you have to modify the mapfile according to the following example:

   PLUGIN "msplugin_mssql2008.dll"
   CONNECTION "server=.\MSSQLSERVER2008;database=geodb;Integrated Security=true"
   DATA "geom from rivers WITH(INDEX(geom_sidx)) USING UNIQUE ID USING SRID=0"

Note: When using the Oracle and SDE plugins (Win32 packages only) be sure that the client libraries have been installed in the environment previously.
