Sweetwater County, WY MapServer application:
When the map text and labels are that garbled at first viewing you have to think of a few things:
1) turn the text layers off
2) fix the damn text placement
3) have some dynamic dependencies so that the labels will turn on at a certain scale so that they are not so offensive at first glance. I mean really?
If the tools you use can't do the right job (MapServer... text placement / conflict detection?!?!) - then work around them. Throw some buffers around the names, do some padding, use smart scaling, something... anything...
Ok... must cool off. Many, many others to write about.
What I will say however is the site has some nice touches and I do actually like the application. The Help is quite good (always important) and I love the info bar at the bottom that includes projection, lat / long, scale, etc., etc. They've done a good job here.
The site itself is quite quick as well - so that's always super plus in my books.
The colors on the Voter Precincts leave a lot to be desired, but not many GIS'ers get coloring correct. Thank God for Cynthia Brewer!!
More to come...
