Map2Go an Edmonton based mapping company has released a web viewer for publishing and managing GIS data over the Internet.Map2Go.
WebViewer is quite impressing java client/server software. It is based on 14 years experience in mapping and display engines. It’s indeed, a major breakaway from most web-based mapping programs that basically create the whole map as a raster image on the server and deliver it to an image viewer client.
Map2go WebViewer uses sophisticated methods of decimation and compression to deliver data to the client machine, which takes care of all the drawings and even some of the processing reducing the server load.
