The mapping in ARK is all accessed using a WFS and WMS client. In order to do this within ARK we generally use Minnesota Mapserver as the server - although as of v0.8 ARK can access any live WMS/WFS server.
The mapping in ARK appears in 3 different places.
- The Spatial Subform (detailed setup instructions)
- The Mapview Page (detailed setup instructions)
- The Data View Page (View as Map) (detailed setup instructions)
If you choose to use Mapserver as your WMS/WFS server then here is a quick guide to how to setup the mapfile.
