I have huge data of maps usually most of the table are co-ordinates and the other are raster maps stored in SQL server 2008 and PostGres Server. I am using desktop application to analyse the data. Usually the desktop end is QGIS or mapinfo. Now I think It would be easier if end user could do the same with the same dataset. So I am building a web application so that those data could be queried and manipulated by end user as required and view as layer. How to get started with this? I had a look at this and this.
The requirement :
- User should be able to query data from server and display it as map.
Since there are multiple tables they should come as multiple layers and user can disable and enable the layer.
There is no relation what so ever with google/bing/or third party maps ( may be this could be quite a feature for version 2)
Actually I want to build simple web application that acts as basic GIS application. Well tell me if I am reinventing the wheel.
I found this link helpful but could not provide step by step solution to the problem
