Web GIS Component Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

Hello,
I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive and light weight alternative to Arc/IMS.
Right now I'm looking closely at AspMap, by vdstech, http://www.vdstech.com/aspmap.htm.
I wanted to see if anyone had any opinions about the AspMap product, or any others.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello,
Have you looked at webmap server?
http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/


It is a Open source project that is very good and has been used for commercial implementations on many occasions.

It has a wicked fast response on shapfiles due to some clever quadtree indexing and supports loads of GIS formats including ArcSDE, SHP, MapInfo, and many images

Also try
http://www.freegis.org/index.en.html for other free GIS of quality.

cheers
Mike

Mike Exon do you know of any current web site that uses mapserver. I did puruse(sp?) a few of the links the web site provided. But I found most to broken or provide a very remedial example.

Got to love Open Source

Try out ALOV.org for a very good tomcat distributed app, it acts as a WMS as well as a communicator between MySQL, SQL Server, POSTGRESQL, Interbase DB2 databases and web clients.

Rather good - and also rather free!!!

I am using it at the moment and find it good to customise (open source) and have enabled web browsing of GIS data within my organisation for free! Apache, Tomcat & MySQL (all opensource) along with ALOV have enabled me to achieve this.

Good luck!
