Visualization Tool



MapServer is an open source multi-platform Web mapping development environment developed at the University of Minnesota. It uses script files and form variables to configure the page output. It can be used to display geospatial data stored as Teradata Database ST_Geometry types from a web server running on Windows. MapServer interfaces with Teradata via a plug-in dll called MSTDPlugin.dll.

The MapServer plug-in is available from the Teradata Developer Exchange, located at http://developer.teradata.com.

Use MapServer when you have polygons or non-latitude, non-longitude data.
