Comparing GeoExt, MapQuery and Legato from a technical and collaborative point of view
Till Adams, terrestris GmbH & Co KG
Since joining the FOSS4G conference 2007 in Vicrtoria, Canada I felt, that OpenLayers is the coming "star" on the â€œOpenSource webbased GIS software-skyâ€œ. Since them we started running numerous projects with OpenLayers as the core-mapping component in our company. But with the upcoming complexity of the projects, there was a strong need for a more powerful client. So we started a piece of software, that we called our "core", which was a kind of marriage between OpenLayers, XML-configuration and the JQuery library.
Of course a comparison must be kind of "subjective" but the talk tries to be as uncommitted as possilbe. Regarding the jungle of Fossgis projects it is always difficult to find out, which piece of software maybe the best for a particular project. This talk will try to give some benchmark data to hit the spot.
In the german community Till is very active in the organizing committee of the german FOSSGIS conference with about 400 participants every year.
