Support of Multiple Web Mapping Service Layers

  • Project description:

    The Web Mapping Service standard defines an interface between a client and a series of servers that is used to effectively retrieve a series of images from servers to be displayed on top of each other in the client application. The MSS WMS client currently supports only displaying a single layer.

    This project shall enable the MSS client program to retrieve multiple layers from WMS servers and offer configuration options for displaying these. This necessarily involves a redesign of the PyQT based user interface and the creation of automated testcases for this.
