deadpickle has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Well I am still creating the same app I have been for a long time. Just a repeat, its an app that loads a geotiff and allows the user to click waypoints.

I use Goo::Canvas because it is easy to draw little icon so that I dont have to make them. Currently I load the geotiff as the background image on the canvas. Now that it loads the geotiff and I can spatially reference it its time to get the goodies working.

I would like to pan and zoom. I have heard that using imageview for this is the best and easiest way. And from the looks of it I would agree. But I am building this program on windows. goocanvas (library) was a pain to install onto windows. And now if I use gtkimageview (required by Gtk2::Imageview) I have to install it onto windows. I cant seem to do that, and am not sure how. Thats why I have come to you, monks. Any ideas on either installing gtkimageview onto windows or any ideas on how I can make this canvas within imageview idea better?

      Well... I have definitely hit a wall. The app I'm building can display a geotiff, and overlay shapefiles after extracting the needed data. But I would like zooming and paning, all the comforts of a geobrowser. And to do this I would like to use inmageview but, using Vista and MSYS, I can't get it installed for the life of me. I could probably get this done in Goo::Canvas but... I'm lazy. Ho Hum.
