Thanks for your reply Roger. The spec for tilemode is at
http://mapserver.org/output/tile_mode.html But Ill definitely look into
TileCache as well.

I wasn't aware that "tile" is a valid mode of operation for Mapserver. I
looked on http://mapserver.org/cgi/controls.html and didn't see it
referenced there, but its entirely possible that it exists and that I've
just missed it. In any case, the way I'm familiar with generating google
map tiles is via the use of Tilecache. Tilecache works as in intermediary
between Mapserver and your Google map. It make the appropriate request to
Mapserver for a tile, and then returns the tile to your map. I think this
might be the solution you're looking for, http://tilecache.org/.
Best of luck,

I have been trying to generate google tiles from shapefiles using mapserver.
I have been able to successfully generate maps by calling the url
ode=map> &mode=map . but when I attempt to use the url
e.map&mode=tile&tile=4+6+4> &mode=tile&tile=4+6+4 I receive only empty
images, regardless of tile specified.
Thanks for any help!
