I've developed many GIS Applications using ESRI ArcGIS 9.3 and 10.0 for ASP.NET .
I'm wondering if i can do a GIS application using my SHAPE files and Pure PHP scripting .
I've googled for that purpose , found many Map Servers solutions , but they were a little bit complicated , my question is : can i have a little Web Application to mange the shape files ,create tiles for them ,deals with Aerial Images, and then display map layers using OpenLayers for example ? i need a lite solution (No php extensions installing required - NO special setup ...etc) .
Thank you .
