Hi Samuel – Welcome! I’m not a regular ScribeUI user (yet) so hard for me to get super specific. You might also want to ping the MapServer-Users mailing list for ideas. One thing I have wondered about is being able to somehow provide a user shortcuts or wizards for more complex (or tedious) configurations. Things like:

·         hollow roads or

·         anything labels

For 7.0, Thomas added some great support Layer Compositing  (RFC 113) but I wonder if some common effects could somehow be made easier to implement or maybe just visualize via ScribeUI.

Subject: [mapserver-dev] ScribeUI on Google Summer of Code 2015

Hello, I'm applying on the Google summer of code for 2015 to work on ScribeUI so I thought I could introduce myself here.

I want to work on solving the current issues, improve the error detection (right now it outputs the mapfile's line numbers and not the Scribe files' line numbers), add the ability to import and export workspaces and add an automatic color scaling based on a set of data, for making statistics maps for example. This is only a rough plan of what I am planning to do this summer and I'm aware most of the users are part of this mailing list so I'm open for suggestions. What features do you think should be prioritized and what needs to be resolved first?

I am already in contact with the previous developers of ScribeUI so I have a good understanding of how the program works, what are its goals and what's missing. I'm hoping I can get input from you during the development of the program so I can focus on what the users need the most.

I hope to be in contact with you!
