comment Should I start a new project using MapGuide OS?
Thanks for the detailed and thorough response. One thing that jumps out - "If you're more GIS user than a programmer... you're gonna have a bad time". To me MapGuide is supposed to target the user, not the programmer. That's why it provides pre-cooked viewers and a GUI configuration tool - it's supposed to be useful with very little input, not a "hacker's GIS". Projects like OpenLayers and GeoServer are exclusively for developers as they require development to be useful. As a contractor my time is expensive, and MG needs too much of it. Most importantly: would you use it for a new project?

comment Is Cloudmade still updating OSM data downloads?
@RichardFairhurst ok I asked GeoFabrik, I will update this post when I know more. I assume that I could load all their separate pieces or North and South America into a single PostGIS db and get the same end result as loading all of the Americas in one go?

@Mapperz I have previously looked at geofabrik but they break the Americas out into multiple different sections. I'm not sure how successfully I could update my existing americas-only PostGIS database from this source

comment Joining 2 tables to create layer in Geoserver with MultiPolygon and Point data types
@Crazenezz the problem you're describing also happens if GeoServer publishes an Oracle view that isn't registered in user_sdo_geom_metadata (Oracle's equivalent of PostGIS geometry_columns). If you have added your view in PostGIS (not via GeoServer) and included it in geometry_columns but it doesn't work try restarting GeoServer to reload all layers.

comment Partially cached maps
GeoServer with GeoWebCache can easily support this, but like geographika said you need to provide some details about your platform.

comment Large Open Street Map OSM file to Shapefile. Is there any hope for 32-bit FME?
@GIS-Jonathan a co-worker told me the same thing, but also suggested Safe could be persuaded to include the changes in a future 2012 Service Pack if I made a good enough argument. I'm working on it...

@Mapperz I'm generally not a shirt-and-tie guy so I'll assume you mean caveats :) FME 2013 dealt with all 40,000,000 features in my dataset and memory peaked around 600 MB. I watched my C drive space slowly decrease but in the end I think it only used about 1 GB.
