[mapserver-users] WMS Request for a single point?

There are a couple of ways of doing this, one is to use a Client that supports layer stacking in the interface, like GeoMoose or Openlayers, and call separate images and then combine them printing. You would need to set up the approriate environment for this approach and this might not be cost effective to you.
Another approach is to apply a symbol via a Mapserver served WMS service. You could make the WMS call to a specific service name that has the PushPin inserted into the center of the image (on top of the background layers you specify) and already composited for output into a single image. You would need to call this as a separate WMS call however.
Going back to the Layered approach, you can also set up a marking system in the client where3 the client decide to add the pushpin, and then print from the client, GeoMoose can accomodate this approach as well, but it's a much higher level of implemnentation.

Hello all! Ok, this is probably a long shot but, is there a way to
request an image from Mapserver that is just a point? The idea is I
have another larger (reference) map image and I want to place a push
pin on top of it in a specified point. It has to be a WMS call so that
I can take the image and merge it with the other larger map into one
so that it can be put into a PDF. Any help would be appreciated.
