MapServer

MapServer is an open source tool for publishing spatial data and interactive mapping applications to the web. It allows users to create “geographic image maps”, that is, maps that can direct users to content. MapServer uses Web Feature Services (WFS) that will serve out features and attributes to users and WMS (Web Mapping Service), that serves an 'image' of what the symbolized layers (gis datasets) look like on the server based on the extent requested. Users can implement python, java, perl, or .net programming languages to work with MapServer.
