(All arguments against google mashups aside) I'm thinking that a
reasonable way to present a property boundaries shapefile is using a
Google mashup. To do that, I'd need to create a web service which can
read the shapefile. The obvious candidate to do that is pyshapelib,
since OF COURSE the only reasonable programming language to use is
Python. But I don't know quite how to take a lat/lon, and ask
pyshapelib to hand me back the shape(s) containing that lat/lon.
I know it's a bit off-topic, but does anybody have any hints for me?
