I am looking at the following link, seeking a software which will allow me to accomplish the following task. http://www.jqueryrain.com/example/jquery-map
We have a lot of hardware out in the field. Sometimes, we might have hundreds of devices in just one large business complex, extending out into which ever city we might be in.
While we have open source and commercial packages to track all sorts of information, the one thing we don't have is a visual of where things are. In some cases, that really comes in handy. I would like to auto generate a map showing where we have routers/switches and other hardware but I do not need any geo location since I have all of those details already stored into a mysql database.
I would like to create this map based on the details that we have stored in the DB, allowing someone to zoom from a large view to a smaller one showing more details as they do. Details only meaning showing basic things such as street, etc.
No one wants to use google, yahoo or others for this which is why I thought I would ask here to see if this is even possible.
I am looking for a free open source solution using jquery. The license cannot disallow open source and/or commercial use in any manner because once this is all completed, I am handing the software over to the owners so don't want them to suffer any limitations.
