Cost effective WebGIS new Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

HI folks,
With the increasing sharing of GIS data on net, our institution is also taking a plunge in it. We have some GIS data in ESRI shapefile format. The requirement is to make this data available to users through net. We want to simply display a static map and let users pan and zoom with layers on/off functionalities. The users would also be able to select an area based on a search criteria.Since this is not for any commercial purpose we won't be able to make use of the costly softwares like ArcIMS or Autodesk Mapguide for this project. I am looking for a cost effective solution to acheive this. I understand that I'll have to use an application server, a databse server and a spatial server. Can anyone please suggest me a right combination which is cost effective. I certainly don't expect a large of number of hits on my site but it should be reliable. Will any opensource solution suffice my requirement ? There are so many opensource/free solutions mentioned on the site that, its confusing as which one I should consider.
Thanks in anticipation

Check out MapServer. It's a free OpenSource Map Server that runs on Unix/Linux and you can use Oracle, Sybase or MySQL for the database and PHP, PERL or Python for the scripting.

here's the link...
