[ka-Map-users] Data handling...

I am building a kaMap/Mapserver application and I'm trying to display 
data across the country.   I have shapefiles from each state for about 
15-20 different layers, some of them (like the local roads) are very 
large.  Is it best to merge these shapefiles, then index them?  Or just 
create tileindexes?  Or merge some and leave the large ones?  Also, I 
have the global mosaic dataset from NASA that needs to be displayed.  
How do I go about massing those files so that they display in a 
reasonable amount of time?

Thanks to all!
