Web-based user editable routing application
I have a set of routes as a text file with coordinates. For each coordinate I also have whether or not it is an intersection with another route. I'm completely new to GIS and I'd like to know how I can go from these paths to an online map showing the routes.
I'd like to use all free software and would like the resulting tiles to be usable in something like openLayers. I would also like to perform routing algorithms on the paths later, so I think using a spatial database would be appropriate. I'm just not sure what steps would be involved and what software should be used. Also, since I'm completely new, if you can recommend any books, tutorials, or videos that would be great too. Thanks!
