It would help if you provided some sort of debugging result from when you load your map. I know that you can get the console up on firefox with ctrl + shift + k. Then jump to javascript tab (because thats where errors happend to me) and you can find your error there. Usually the infinite loading icon means there is an error. And yes you should create ...

I assume that you have the Enterprise Agreement with Google (since Google Maps APIs Terms restrict you to a public website with no fee charges otherwise). The Enterprise solution is decent and if adding new points with attributes to the map and creating heatmaps are the main tasks, I can't imagine why would you need to move to a "GIS Server" at all. See ...

I would assume that there is some sort of documentation, or bylaw in the contract stating that the services are contingent upon the capabilities of the Google API, you're the subject matter expert, I would move forward ASAP so you're not wasting his time or yours in developing a product that doesn't meet the clients needs.

You can try using GDAL2Tiles. It is a small utility that will convert your GeoTIFFs into a directory structure of small map tiles which you can just copy to your webserver. Once installed, you can use it like so: gdal2tiles --profile=mercator -z 1-8 yourmap.tif outputfolder This command will generate tiles from zoomlevel 1-8 outputfolder. You can then ...

Checking out if you get some error using some web development tool (like firebug). If you are getting a blocked mixed content error (usually I got this) then it is very simple to solve. Have a look at this link. Basically you should remove the protocol (http) from the source link for jquery and leaflet by editing your index.html file: from <script ...

1) Is there a web-based method for collecting features? (something simpler and more error-resilient than editing a map through the arcgis online interface) Honestly, the ArcGIS Online interface for editing is pretty straight forward in my opinion, but you could use one of their application templates (i.e. the Editor application) if you feel it offers a ...

The ArcGIS app lets you view web maps, not web mapping applications. Web mapping applications are composed of HTML, Javascript and CSS and are accessed from a device's web browser. Here's an example of a web mapping application: http://keller.maps.arcgis.com/apps/PublicInformation/index.html?appid=6061c77c5f2e4b219e9ec91f9d4acd0c It is designed to work ...

The short answer is that you can't do what you're trying to do. OpenLayers requires that you pass in a URL to a WMS endpoint e.g. http://my.host.com/cgi-bin/mapserv?map=mywms.map&SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=GetCapabilities In your example above you are pointing to a MapServer map, not a WMS endpoint. The next problem is that I don't ...

There are many solutions for your question, some more suitable than others based on constraints such space/memory available in your servers. The client side looks like simple because you do not want to overlay any other layer at this moment, so leaflet or openlayers can help you. The server side is a bit trick, since you need to decide how to provide your ...

Another option you could explore is using Tilemill to generate tiles from your GeoTIFFs. You can then just put the tiles on a webserver and call them using Leaflet. No need to set up databases or middleware. Basically you load the GeoTIFFs into TileMill and export it as MBTiles. This is MapBox's format for storing the tiles in a SQLite database. You then ...

I'd start with GeoServer on the server side. You just need to put the files on the hard drive, create an ImageMosaic store, then publish whatever layers (perhaps just one) you need. The ImageMosaic is the critical part - that will turn your collection of aerial photographs into a single image. Note that there are likely to be some artifacts where the images ...

You could look into Tilestache. This tutorial may help get you started with what you want to do.
