1. The SharpMap Option: is an easy-to-use mapping library for use in web and desktop applications.  Coding is in C# with differnt UI's for Forms or Ajax Apps.   http://www.codeplex.com/SharpMap
2. SQL2008 Option - A free shapepfile transfer application enables transfer to SQL2008 Express which has spatial storage features. You then need a MapServer interface to talk to SQL and deliver geometries.
3. ArcGIS 9.3 Option combined with an ArcScripts that exports generalised shapefile data that responds to click events like hotspots/imagemaps.  www.esri.com
4. Flash Option: MapShaper is a free online editor for Polygon and Polyline Shapefiles. It has a Flash interface that runs in an ordinary web browser. http://www.mapshaper.org/
5. Google Option - You can readily convert shapefiles to KML for display using Google as long as the files are not too big.
6. FreeGIS.Org Option with many links to different options;
