Custom Web Mapping Solutions
gi Perspective design, build, host and support many open source solutions for varied uses including Planning, Transport, Housing and Grounds Maintenance. Using existing modules, such solutions can be efficiently repurposed for new clients seeking an interactive web mapping solution. In contrast with commercial vendor software models, open source gives the general public access to the source code, meaning web mapping solutions can be developed and shared more easily.

Open source technologies
We most commonly use a range of technologies to deliver open source solutions; MapServer and GeoServer for the mapping engine; MySQL and PostgreSQL / PostGIS for database technology; OpenLayers for map functionality in the browser. Open source web mapping has changed the way geographic information can be delivered, opening up a new set of users and markets who need no detailed knowledge of projections and datums, but can use free data and software to produce online mapping solutions. Concentrating budget on development rather than software means that more customisation of presentation and functionality can become the focus of your GIS.
