GIS Applications

Hi

I am looking to develop an online interactive map. I would appreciate feedback on GIS applications that best serve the online/web environment that will be accessed primarily by a non technical user.

I have already received some feedback regarding ESRI and MapGuide but are there any others that excel in an online environment? I would prefer if the user did not have to download a viewer before accessing the map. Any feedback on CadCorp applications - or any others? Users must be able to upload "assets" to the map. The application must have a powerful information analysis tool capable of "theming". The maps must have a reasonable load time on a dial-up connection.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Consider to evaluate Microsoft MapPoint:

You could try

http://www.intergraph.com

http;//www.autodesk.com

but ESRI's ArcIMS is perfect for this.

You can try geomedia webmap. Same idea though, it usually involves a one time download.  There are html versions of all these packages, but be warned, they are extremely crappy in comparison to using the plugins.  You might also try using MapServer.

http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/

This is a free tool, and youll find most of the example site links are quite good.

Easy to Use, Not intimidating, and Powerful Analysis.  Thats a tough nut to crack.  Probably a compromise is in order.  If you users are expected to upload their own data, surely, they must be competent enough to download a plugin, otherwise would you really want their data posted on your site?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
