Here's the second version of my MapServer application. It's much improved from v1.0, but still needs a lot
of work :) If you wish to begin now, slap "Initialize" below to start. Basically, use the "Browse
Mode" to pan and zoom around the map. Use "Query Mode" to gain information about an object. Right
now the only queryable layers are my trips. You can click on any trip and get a link to more
information about that trip. Before you start you may wish to read some of the points below...
There are a few things you may want to note before you begin:
This application is very much in development -- there will be bugs, guaranteed!
Everything you see is subject to change at any time, and may well change while you're looking at it, as
I'm constantly changing things around. In other words, the application may suddenly throw an error at you
for no reason
Sometimes the WMS times out, so you may get a map image that is missing one or more layers. Not too
much I can do about that, unfortunately, but usually if you try again it should work
I will have metadata online eventually, but for now, suffice to say that all data shown here is, to the
best of my knowledge, publically available.. so don't sue me. In fact, read the Disclaimer while you're here.
I plan on writing a "How To" or "User Guide" for the application (eventually), but for now you'll have
figure it out yourself. Basically, use "Browse" mode to pan and zoom, and use "Query" mode to query
If you wish to email me regarding this application,
feel free to do so. However, I don't want to hear
that you found an error (unless you also have a solution to it) as I'm likely aware of the error you found
and am working on it. Constructive criticism, on the other hand, is happily accepted, especially regarding
usability, layout, etc.

Don't like the looks of my formatting or code? Too bad! I'm not a programmer, and I know that I have
terrible habits when it comes to this. However, the current state is a real mess, as I'm just making it up
as I go..it should improve as time goes on
I realize these pages look nothing like the rest of "Darren's Outdoor Page," but I'm currently not too
worried about that. I am possibly re-doing all of my pages soon, so no need to format these pages in the
old style if that is going to happen...
Thanks for reading, now click on "Initialize" above to begin
