[maplab-users] maplab :g map factory error

I have found that defining the path to the actual GIS data used in the map 
is best when defined relative to the position of the mapfile.  So if the 
mapfile sits in a subfolder under mapedit, for example, then it is easier to 
have the data sitting in a subfolder beneath the mapfile in your file 
structure.  If you did the same thing when creating the mapfile in mapedit 
(defined the path to GIS data relative to the mapfile), then if you merely 
moved the mapfile to another location, for instance, under the gmapfactory 
folder then mapserver won't know where to find your data.  Try creating the 
gmap application by selecting the same mapfile in the same location as you 
used in mapedit.  If this is not the problem you are experiencing, then I am 
not sure what problem you are experiencing.
