    Hi Gordon,
    Your technical tutorial is great and easy to understand. I set-up a MapGuide web-site in a couple of days, following your guidance.
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

    I am trying to link an Object Data with a local machine file. I am Having a problem with the <a href code. So I can link pdfs and other file to a object data. I am using Maestro r5060.. Can you please help.

    You have two choices with Object Data:
    1. Use FME to translate to something else (i.e. SDF)
    2. Use AIMS 2013 (it now supports DWG directly with Object Data)

    Hi Gordon,
    Your tutorial was a great help for me as i was very much confused about how to use maestro and its role in mapguide open source.
    Can you also please tell me or at least give me a hint about its programming specially server side programming, plotting data from database, searching, querying and symbolization of maps.
    i have searched a lot but cant find anything regarding these topics. Thank you very much in advance.
