I am very new to web-mapping, so this question may be a little misguided.
I want to have a very simple web interface using OpenLayers (or even Google Maps if that will be easier) which can display a number of point and polygon tables that are currently in PostGIS.
I want this to be as simple (and as low maintainence) as possible:
- I don't want to have to create tiles (unless there is a very good reason), or have a massive, complex layer of middleware.
- Performance doesn't need to be phenomenal, as this is for internal use and thus doesn't need to scale beyond a couple of concurrent users.
- Styling of the vector layers is of minimal importance.
- Open source tools are much preferred as I have almost no budget for this.
What is the recommended approach for this?
