Dear Sanghee Shin,
IN case of MapServer you can find its applicaitons' gallery under:
IN European structures there is a cell dealing with e-government, called
IDABC, which runs a Open Source Observatory. Lately OSO has been active
In case o Belgium I know a succesfull applicaiton, presented by Lieven raes
at CASCADOSS workshop - a software project called GeGIS - dealing mainly
with farmers' field inventory via web service (tWFS application). You can
find the details under

hello Sanghee Shin,
I was at the same AGM, presenting the deegree software project, which is
currently in OSGeo-incubation.
If you go to the deegree site at http://www.deegree.org - "About" -
you will find a long list of projects that have been carried out in
kinds of institutions both governmental and private industry, using deegree
I am sure, there are similar examples from other software and projects.
Hope this may help,
