currently I am working on a PHP-Mapscript to display a legend for a geological map. In general it's nothing to speak of, but geological maps often have plenty of classes in a layer (the one I'm working on has 182) and a legend containing all of them would be really huge. It is my intention to have the legend only show the classes resp. legend items currently visible inside the actual map extend but I found no way to manage it without MapScript. Only at one place I found a hint to that feature: Bug # 750. I can imagine the needs for such MapServer feature is growing. Does anyone have an idea if this will be implemented in the near future ?
