Many market surveys in Germany are indicating that the GIS usage in smaller municipalities and counties will increase in future. This is due to the fact that Internet technologies are offering advanced solutions, not only for eGovernment but also for GIS problems. The concept of a cost-effective Internet-GIS solution for communes and counties based on Open-Source-software is described.
The potential of such solutions is explained based on an example developed with the UMN Map Server for the administration in a county in Germany. In our research and development we are investigating different user scenarios and user interfaces. Various GIS data sets and ortho photos are important data sources besides legal data sets. Interactive professional applications are implemented based on the county's needs.
The technical solutions are realised using open standards (SVG/XML of the World Wide Web Consortium [W3C]) and open source software (WAMP architecture and UMN Map Server).
