In my mapserver maps (served as a WMS) I'd like to add a layer from an
untiled WMS (not under my control).
Simple enough, but this WMS restricts the returned images to a maximum
number of pixels, and also restricts the scale (only scales larger than
a certain scale is allowed). The maps I'd like to make of course exceeds
the limit of pixels.
The solution seems simple enough: chop up the request in a series off
requests, and stich the returned images together. So basically this is a
tiling approach. To complicate things a bit, the service is not
I guess I have to use the GDAL-WMS minidriver and/ or TileCache, but
I've not a clue to how to proceed. Can anyone please point me to some
usefull examples or give me a short explanation to work from?
any help again greatly appreciated ...
