Web Map Server
Skipping Remote Sensing Software (definitely don’t need) and 3D application (would be fun to play with). Let’s see how to map on the web!
- ArcGIS Server - link redirects, but I’m over the novelty of correcting awesome lists…
- MapServer - “platform for publishing spatial data and interactive mapping applications to the web” MIT
- GeoServer - “open source server for sharing geospatial data” GPL
- QGIS Server - Link is dead, and the four QGIS apps appear to be one package. GPL
- deegree - “open source software for spatial data infrastructures and the geospatial web” LGPL
- GeoDjango - “intends to be a world-class geographic Web framework” Guessing same license as django
- mapnik - “combines pixel-perfect image output with lightning-fast cartographic algorithms, and exposes interfaces in C++, Python, and Node” LGPL
- Geomajas - “open source platform to create Web GIS applications” AGPL. that’s kinda cool. Their clients are weird though, so maybe only the server is interesting.
- Mapbender - “content management system for geospatial data services and map applications” MIT
- MapFish - “flexible and complete framework for building rich web-mapping applications” BSD
- MapGuide - “web-based platform that enables users to develop and deploy web mapping applications and geospatial web services” LGPL
- Nanocubes - “command-line utility that processes your data and starts a web server to answer query requests” EPL
- GeoTrellis - “geographic data processing engine for high performance applications” Apache
- NextGIS Web - “server-side Web GIS and a framework for storage, visualization and permissions management for various kinds of geospatial data and services” GPL
- OpenMapTiles Server - " deploy world basemap powered by OpenStreetMap and Docker" I can’t find a repo for the actual server…
- OpenTileServer - " This script is for building a basic tile server with OpenStreetMap data." No license, and little guidance on source licenses
- SuperMap iServer - 90 day free license! Wow!
- GeoWebCache - “Java web application used to cache map tiles coming from a variety of sources” LGPL
- Earth Enterprise - “open source release of Google Earth Enterprise” Apache, for publishing personal map globes…
It’s a feast for map servers!
