9This script simply tries to implement a OGC-compliant WMS service.
10
11By now, there is only one available layer, with very basic rendering. This WMS server makes use of the proj.4 library to serve the data in a variety of coordinate systems: EPSG 4326, as well as all the UTM zones and the (infamous) EPSG:900913 are available.

15Usage
16-----
17
18Simply copy all files to a PHP-enabled web server, and point your favorite WMS client to wms.php.
19
20In order to coordinate systems other than EPSG 4326 to work, however, the proj4 library has to be installed in your system, and the "cs2cs" executable must be in the default path. In most linux distributions, this means that you just have to install the "proj" package.

24Usage with osmarender
25---------------------
26
27In order for the osmarender layer to work, you'll need:
28- A tweaked osmarender install, as provided
29- Perl and the perl modules needed for osmarender to work
30- Inkscape
31- Create a .gnome2 directory in the www-data home directory (usually /var/www) - without this, inkscape won't work
32
33The tweaks applied to osmarender are:
34- Neutralize the code that projects the data into epsg:900913 AKA "google's spherical mercator"
35- Nuke the background rectangle
