I have installed PrimaGIS and I try to set up an educational site. I am
facing a problem that may lead to a deadlock so I would like to get
users ans developpers opinion. Am I doing things in the wrong way or is
there something to change for future PrimaGIS releases ?
Our academic programs require to tackle global problems like climate or
ocean circulation, medium scale questions like pollution and natural
hazards, local investigations like structural geology. When I
register data sets I have not found any other solution than mixing up
all my WMS ressources(ZCO Data Stores) in the same portal_gis MapTool.
Viewed from the ZMI it still looks great (at least at the beginning!) 5
or 10 elements in a list. This is quite reasonable but viewed from the
PrmaGIS layer .... OOPS ......you get tens and tens of possible layers
in a scrollable list ; even if it is probably the best possible
solution, it is not simple to deal with. I got scared thinking what
might happen when the site ages and gets hundred of ZCO Datastore
bearing thousands of possible PrimaGIS layers....in the same scrollable
Is there any solution to get simpler behavior (except by instancing as
many plones as topics). Would it be possible for example to have "ZCO
folders" inside the portal_gisMap_Tool that may correspond each to one
scrollable list in the modify PrimaGIS layer page. The user may then see
as many scrollable lists as topics; he can choose a list then scroll
only the layers which interests him.
Thanks and congratulations for your work.
