[ka-Map-users] Got it working

On your article you refer to a program called "shp2img" and say if you have 
map server installed in a way that you can use it. How is that "way"? 

Currently I got your example working along with some others I found. 
However, I'm now trying to add my own stuff and it's not working. We use 
arcGIS for our mapping and can't seem to get the files to show up on ka map 
(it's terribly annoying having to empty the cache directory so that's why I 
wanted that utility). This is the case with both our aerials and shape 

Basically I took your example map file and changed it's name and referenced 
our tiff exported from our mapping software along with our shape files 
instead of the examples (and changed ka maps config file to include it and 
that seems to work as it's an options). At first we thought our projections 
were off and that could be the problem, but we changed them to fit the 
example's projection type and still nothing shows up. Furthermore I'm not 
getting any errors that let me know what the issue is (I get the "PHP Fatal 
error: [MapServer Error]: msImageLoadGD(): ((null)) in 
/var/www/html/KaMap/keymap.php on line 38" error since I don't have a 
reference map but I dont' have that on the example either and it works). If 
you go to the cache directory, it is making tiled images but they're just 

I'm guessing this is more of a issue concerning mapserver but if anyone has 
any hints or experience doing the same I would really appreciate your 
feedback. I've learned a lot in two days but I still have a ways to go.
