Subject: Query Mode
To: MAPSERVER-USERS at lists.umn.edu
When I set the mapserver(CGI) in query mode(based on query templates)
and click on a layer, I am ABLE to get the information from the dbf
1.) How can I send the lat/long of the click that I make to a PostGIS
table and retrieve information based on the lat/long?
2.) Also, is it possible to get the information from the dbf and query
the PostGIS table based on information from the dbf. For example,
.dbf file has ID=1 for a feature. Now, when I click on a feature, can
I get the ID value and subsequently query the PostGIS table for UUID
based on ID before I display both the UUID and ID?
click -> get ID from dbf
-> get UUID from PostGIS table using ID
-> Display UUID and ID
I appreciate if someone can suggest me a way to tackle these two issues.
