Opensource Web Mapping and GIS Summary

Premise: we do not have a sufficient plan for managing spatial data at UMBS. Currently, it is housed on a computer maintained by the Resident Biologist which, while backed-up and secure, makes version control, editing and access difficult. Ideally, at some point we will go to a web infrastructure for this. I've got a lot to learn on this subject so here goes.

Following this talk Stefan Steiniger - Building on Open Source GIS @ COSSFest 2010:

Web Map Server Software

Web GIS Server - server-side data processing utilizing WPS

Spatial Database Management Systems

Catalogue/Registry Metadata - data discovery tools which offer UI's for querying and displaying data
