I am working on a web-map system which I am embedding in a form in an Access database. I will be distributing this database to clients so need it to be as self-contained as possible (i.e. no installation). Other than Access itself I am trying to keep this FOSS in order to keep development time and costs down.
I am looking for a way of serving map tiles to this without using an internet connection.
Can this be achieved by creating a well-structured folder of pre-created png tiles?
If not, is there a mapserver which I could distribute alongside my Access database?
Bonus question: What software can I use to create WMS tiles?
