Dear all, I am building a GIS system. All my data is stuffed into geoserver. I need to have a front end able to do the following:
- Select one or several layers from geoserver and show it to the end user on a map. It is important to say that there are many layers (speaking 1000s or so) so I want to make a search and pile up some layers the user has choosen and then generate a map with those layers, being able the check boxes for display
- Create some group of layers to simplify the work as in point 1.
- To be nice, ie a bit like extjs (but extjs is out for licensing issues) having the possibilities to overlay windows on top of the map abd collapse them if needed.
So far i have checked out different things but it is always one piece of the stack. Openlayers, extjs, mapfish....
Anything out there?
If there is noting, how many people would be ready to team up to come up with opensource stuff. I was thinking about a grails plugin.
