QgisToMapServer - a Conversion Tool

QgisToMapServer converts a saved QGIS project file to a map file, ready to be served with MapServer. A binary preview version for both Mac and Windows is available now. For Linux/Unix users, the source code is available from the Git repository.

QgisToMapServer is different from the plugin in QGIS. It is a standalone Python application providing the following features:

  • Create MapServer map files from saved QGIS project files

  • Preview the map file (requires shp2img)

  • Customizable data path
