[postgis-users] Data/example mapfile for PostGIS MUM Workshop Notes

Hello there,

	I noticed the notes for the PostGIS workshop given at the MUM being 
posted online and downloaded them right after I noticed them.  First 
off, many many many thanks for posting those notes as they have helped 
me tremendously in understanding how to use PostGIS!

	However, I was noticing in part 5-7 of the workshop tutorial you work 
through importing shapefiles into PostGIS then preparing the tables for 
MapServer and displaying them via MapServer.  However there is mention 
in the tutorial about an example mapfile and some example shapefile 
data.   Would it be possible to get a copy of the example mapfile and 
perhaps the shapefile data just to work through the example completely? 
   The most important is just seeing the mapfile to understand how the 
queries are formed in MapServer from data imported from a shapefile.

	My apologies for sending this as a private email however I wasn't sure 
if this was appropriate to send to the whole PostGIS-users mailing list.

	Once again many thanks for the online notes and of course PostGIS.

Best regards,
Alain Hoang
