    The answer heavily depends on how you want to publish your map online - the spectrum of possibilities ranges from exporting a simple *.jpg and putting it on your website to creating a dynamic webservice a la Google maps, either with tiled raster data or true vector data. – SAnderka Jul 3 '12 at 8:15

    You may want to consider Looking for a FREE Cloud based 'Web Mapping Stack' Host, specifically the info on QGIS Cloud. – dakcarto Jul 3 '12 at 14:38

use Quantum GIS (QGIS) Web Client here and QGIS Server which @Gabriel Giroux stated above.

A WMS based webgis client that makes use of QGIS specific WMS extensions (e.g. highlighting, printing, metadata, etc.). QGIS webclient reads the configuration from the WMS GetCapabilities command and builds the layer tree accordingly. Supports legend graphic, feature info requests and printing.

The client builds on existing Web-GIS libraries OpenLayers and GeoExt, as well as ExtJS 3 for the GUI widgets.


i hope it helps you...


MapServer is also an open-source (free option) that requires an Apache Web Server. There are tutorials at www.mapserver.org as well as installation instructions, and plenty of examples.


Before publishing your QGIS project make sure that you have QGIS Server up and running. To accomplish that process I recommande you to have a look to this link below that explain step by step how to install ang configure QGIS server.


  • Is qgis server only for WMS or can it be used to host actual weblinks containing qgis maps? I would like to use it to provide data links to non-GIS users... – user32882 Sep 15 at 11:13
