  1. Hello All, I am new to web GIS application development and i'm looking for a good opensource web GIS client/server which provides a great selection of tools, widgets, features and functionality. I know that Openlayers is a very popular web GIS client but i found that Mapfish, which uses Openlayers, has more tools and features. Same with Mapbender which also uses OpenLayers. I would like some guidance regarding the best combination of opensource software that i can use for Web GIS Development: GIS client, GIS server (GeoServer or Mapserver? etc) and any other additional tools or extensions that can improve functionality (e.g. ExtJS4, GeoExt). I am familiar with python programming, VB and a little bit of javascript. So any opensource tools that use these programming languages will be easier for me to learn. Many Thanks Demis
  2. Freeware or script for publishing online maps

    Ho to all, with ArcGis10 I had created some maps of my region. Now I would like to display data in an online site. Some months ago I found a script, maybe in flash, that let us to display a shapefile in a site... but now I am not able to re-find this script. Do you have any suggestions? Which scripts do you use for displaying data online? Manyu thanks, Fabio
  3. Web Server suggestions!!!

    Hi, I want to develop a website in which I want to show data that consists of 5-6 layers with 1-2 GB size. The data will be converted/saved in MS SQL server 2008. Some satellite image as a base layer may or may not be needed in later stage. Layers include point, line and polygon geometry types. Data will be queried by end user using combo boxes may be and queried data will be displayed on may be google maps or my satellite imagery or only the data alone. My problem is that I've only a little experience of google maps api. I don't know pro's and con's of using a map server like mapguide, mapserver, GeoMedia or ArcIMS etc. or google maps api. Can any body give me a comparison of capabilities of these webgis solutions considering above mentioned requirements. Regards
