I want a cheaper solution than ESRI ArcGIS server for my online web GIS applications. I want to:
- display multiple SHP files and an aerial image,
- retrieve the SHP attributes,
- all in a web page inside my PHP applications.
I tried Geoserver, and got stuck in tiling the aerial images, plus the performance is not that good. When I used ImagePyramid for example, I had the universal problem
Could not list layers for this store, an error occurred retrieving them: This plugin accepts only File, URL and String pointing to a file
I tried to google it, found a lot of other users faced the same problem, no straight online tutorial describes the required steps or how to troubleshoot the mistakes.
Any help or suggestion for alternatives?
