Blueprints for the GIS Module

To display Shapefiles & Images we need to install a 3rd party server. GeoServer is probably a better target than MapServer

  • GeoServer uses OpenLayers as native preview
  • GeoServer has a Printing plugin
  • OpenGeoSuite provides an integrated stack
  • MapFish Studio

We should aim to be compatible with UN Logistics: http://www.logcluster.org/mapcenter/unsdi

Ideas from here could be useful:
