Hi all!


I am interested in setup a map server, over a linux machine.

It is very easy to work with popular infrastructures like Google or Bing, but what I wish is independency.

So I will be able to access and navigate the map (will buy a commercial map from the market) within my intranet.

I noticed that ArcGIS API for Flex is a very good option...

Requirements: Merkator & Spherical view.


I will be waiting professional help from experts


Thanks in advance!

There are so many factors in this equation - maybe could specify more exactly what you want to know from us? If you want professional help, I am sure you could find a map server consultant in your area... !


Maybe a good start is to specify what use cases you have for your intranet, what kind of services/operations you and your colleagues will operate on the map.

Maybe start with OsGeo-Live?



"OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Xubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around.


It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and documentation."



There's a lot of databases, web services, ... pre-installed. 


It's a great way to start.
