MapServer and OGC Web Services in real life, and saving lives
Daniel Morissette, Mapgears Inc
Open Source software and Open Standards are especially important when talking about sharing data over the web. MapServer, as a web mapping server, and its support for OGC web services such as WMS and WFS provide a platform of choice for data sharing and distribution.
We will have a look at how Quebec's Ministry of Public Safety and their partner organizations leverage MapServer's ease of use, robustness and support of OGC web services in their real life mission critical applications, to actually save lives.
