The MapServer Foundation is currently supporting two open source web mapping projects:

  • MapServer Cheetah, the most widely used open source solution for building spatially enabled web applications
  • MapServer Enterprise, a new open source spatial application server that enables users to quickly develop and distribute spatial and design data over the web or intranets

The MapServer Foundation website will grow to include

  • Improved content and usability – training materials, documentation, software, sample code, and more to support and expand the community
  • Process – formalized processes for project management, tracking bugs, submitting code changes, and setting development direction
  • Incubation – access to tools that allow MapServer Cheetah and MapServer Enterprise to benefit from the tremendous innovation occurring in the development of web mapping tools
  • Project branding – a professionally branded community icon for use on websites and in other training or advocacy materials
