    @PolyGeo: It seemed a bit superficial to be a proper answer. I'd prefer answers contained content rather than links... – BradHards Jan 29 '13 at 4:44
  • @BradHards - just as a link that Answer would be almost as long as the Question;-) – PolyGeo Jan 29 '13 at 6:02

I work for Ordnance Survey, Great Britain's National Mapping Agency, and we use GeoServer for our web Map Service, OS OnDemand.

We also use PostgreSQL and PostGIS to store our vector data.
