[mapguide-internals] test data / maps for new stylization needed

Sorry UV, I don't have any enhanced stylization packages with tiled maps handy.

But you could temporarily modify the unit test data to quickly get something useful, i.e. change the layers referenced in the RenderingService MapDefinitions (MDFs) to be tiled layers (BaseMapLayer elements) instead of regular layers.  You can use the TileService unit test MDF (UT_BaseMap.mdf) as a guide (these unit test files simply contain XML data).  You may also need to update the set of FiniteDisplayScales in the MDF to something more appropriate.  Finally, just replace the RenderMap calls in TestRenderingService with RenderTile (with appropriate row / column values).

The nice thing about this approach is that once it's set up you can very easily tweak the settings, especially the symbol definitions.

If you do take this approach then I'd recommend going a little further and coding it up as a new / separate rendering service unit test.  The test would specifically exercise your new functionality, and you could then include it as part of your RFC 60 submission.  Just create copies of the data files you need to tweak and have the new test reference these.

In order to move forward in implementing code for new stylization some 
test data would be useful.
The data in the rendering service unit tests does not use tiles so its 
of no use for RFC60.

Anyone has a package that can be used for such purpose please?
