Open source for WMS:

Recommended Posts

Hi veegee,

There is a good choice of Open Source WMS servers:

- MapServer

- GeoServer

- Quantum GIS [Map]Server (relatively new)

I mainly use MapServer.  It's relatively straight forward to set up and configuration is done through a .map file.  The p.mapper website has an online example which is driven by MapServer behind the scenes.  

Hope that helps,

Kind regards,

Could you specify what type of data are you usually moving via Erdas Apollo?

Alternative, I'd suggest using LandViewer. There are already ready-made tools for obtaining multispectral indices, flexible processing of data on AOI, elementary clustering, using a raster calculator, visualization of scenes in 3D using digital elevation models, changes in territories based on multi-temporal multispectral analysis, as well as creating ready-made animations of changes in terrain and so much more.

You may use THIS guide to help you add WMS layer via LandViewer.
