First of all I am new to GIS, I have used ArcGIS and QGIS for some basic engineering projects. Mainly I have looked for freely available GIS data online (solar radiation), downloaded the data, generated JPEG images and submitted engineering reports. I have also done some very basic tasks in ArcGIS, like aspect map, slope map, buffer zone, etc.
Here is my problems, I have a server, i want to log in to server via internet using google Chrome browser and accesses the GIS data that is on the server for viewing only!
I have in total 6 layers, and it would be nice to be able to turn the layers on and off.
Think of it as Google Maps, but only a person with a user/pass can log into it and the person can view a number of layers, turn them on and off, zoom in and out, that is it!
It would be nice if I can make a connection between the above layers and OpenStreetMap as well.
Is this possible and how?
Is there a GIS open source software (or commercial software) that allows for such task?
I have been looking at "web based QGIS" but i am very confused and don't think it is what i want.
Note that I don't want the client to install any apps on his computer, I want him to only use Google Chrome browser without any addons.
