Geospatial tools April 22, 2006

A good article from O’Reilly here: http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/network/2005/06/10/osgeospatial.html

Perhaps the book Web Mapping Illustrated by Tyler Mitchel could be of interest.

The two most promising server products that i’ve found are:

OpenMap: Looks like a very promising project. The server called MapGuideServer which can be built ontop of Apache, IIS or Tomcat and use PHP, .Net or Java. Very complete project for creating maps quickly, offers a client made by AutoDesk called Map Guide Studio as well. (https://mapguide.osgeo.org and http://usa.autodesk.com)

MapServer
: Developed by the university of minesota. Installs as an extention to web server. Another open source project that builds on MapServer is Chameleon, looks good for getting going quickly (http://chameleon.maptools.org/).
