Hi list,

thanx Marc to push the article forward.

I agree with the structure, just added some topics to 4. functionality.

I think we can take lot of the text from the wiki and just change them a bit.

I added the links to the chapters. Maybe we can build up the article in
the Mapbender WIKI [[OSGeo-News Vol.1 2007 Mapbender]] and discuss it
there. Afterwards Marc can transform it to Latex.

Marc - could you go for it and bring bits an pieces together?

> if anyone is willing to write the article, I would gladly convert it to
latex-format. I'd like to help on the article's content as well, but I
think we should write the article together.

> A proposed structure (first thoughts):
> 1. Introduction

> 2. What is Mapbender

> 3. Short history of Mapbender
* by now it is not really actual (ended 2006-03) and only in german *
Sebastian could you translate the text to english
(maybe shorten it a bit)

> 4. Functionality
* link to a mapbender_demo, where people can try the functionality (link
will follow Christoph and I are workung on it)
> 4.1 Manage geodata
> 4.2 Visualize, navigate and query geodata
* WFS - search , digitizing
* Metadata handling
* user/group administation

> 5 Future Implementations

> 6 References and weblinks
