Not something I've thought of. Options as I see it would be to:

  - use mapscript. Presumably most scripting languages can access MongoDB.
  - Write a native MapServer driver plugin...
  - Wait for OGR support...

Subject: [mapserver-dev] MongoDB support?

Hi All,

Has anyone thought of adding support for MongoDB? I asked on the GDAL list if there was support via OGR.

MongoDB is a popular NoSQL database, there are others and google around it seems that people have experimented with moving shapefiles in and out of it using python and ogr.

Anyway, I'm trying to keep up with the technology and found that MongoDB actually has some basic spatial support built into it. Which got me to the point that I would like to be able to issue a query and pull points and attributes into a mapserver layer.

Any thoughts on how to do this?
