I have previously extracted aerial image dates from metadata in a local XML file, but having moved to a WMS layer, I have to use the info tool WMS GetFeatureInfo, and find the date in date_flown = '[date,time]'. How do I capture that information using a MapBasic command? Ideally it needs to be captured when I click inside a polygon to open a dialog box.
few months ago I built a large application that reads data from WMS among many other capabilities; my application captures elevations, Z levels from a variety of sources. If you want and you are not in a hurry I can prepare for you a short MB script just for your needs. I should need the URL of that WMS connection. I offer this for free.
That's a very kind offer, thank you. Four days after posting my question I thought I probably wouldn't get a response, so I opened a ticket directly with support. A case is open but I haven't had a response yet. We should probably wait to see what they come back with before inconveniencing you with this task, but I may still need help as I'm not a 'real' programmer.
Hello Sergi,The case is still with Engineering and they have yet to come up with anything. If they don't find a resolution soon, perhaps we can have another look at your offer of help.Kind regards,Steve
OK, I'll be glad to help you.good Easter!Sergi
Well engineering research have finally admitted defeat!Shall we talk after Easter?Thanks,Steve
Hi Steve,Please, whitch is the URL of that WMS you need? thank you.SGR
