I'm pretty new to the GIS area. I was involved in a project that used MapXtreme server and MapXtreme SDK to query the tabs (as in SearchNearest , SearchInRadius etc...) I'm looking for an open source alternative that I can integrate in .Net web app that will use OpenLayers + Tile Cache and I'll be able to query Tab (or Shape) files after the user pin the map.

Thank you in advance

I've used SharpMap in the past for this. I was using it for an ASP.NET application and it was very easy to use it as a WMS server with OpenLayers as the client.

Thank you , do I need also tile cache server or sharpmap does it alone ? –  Alophind Nov 9 '12 at 6:50
    
I don't use a tile cache, just SharpMap. Using some sort of tile cache would be a good idea though; I keep meaning to look at geoCache. –  welshdave Nov 9 '12 at 20:00

I would recommend to look into MapAround framework http://maparound.ru

Would you please expand upon this answer, explaining why you recommend MapAround, and some of its key benefits? This will help others who read this in the future, especially if the URL changes (as they often do) and this link isn't updated. Thanks. –  user3461 Apr 16 '13 at 13:01
