MapServer Enterprise is a new web mapping platform that enables developers to rapidly develop and deploy valuable spatial applications. It works with the latest PHP, .NET, and Java™ tools to quickly build powerful applications for Microsoft® Windows® or Linux server environments. Developers can also easily publish spatial views over the web, using either an AJAX-based viewer or Autodesk’s DWF™ plug-in viewer for offline portability.

Applications built using MapServer Enterprise give customers, internal teams, and the public a faster, easier, and more flexible way to query, analyze, and view crucial spatial information.

MapServer Enterprise will become a full open-source project in early 2006. A preliminary release including full source is available today, so you can download the source code, build the product, and try it out.
