[OSGeo-Discuss] web mapping package

I'm looking for a web mapping package that can be used to show 15 - 20
datasets at once.  These data just need to be turned on/off and maybe an
identify/query feature.  Data are points, lines, polygons, and rasters
(aerial imagery, DEMs, etc...)   Basically, I'm looking for a way to show
these datasets to a few dozen colleagues located in various depts.

So far, MapGuide OS and GeoMoose seem to be the two best options.  I have
used Mapserver and Postgis before and could use these again.  Vectors are
mostly shapefiles and rasters are img or ESRI grids (I could convert to png
tiles using GDAL or something similar.)

Any thoughts on the ease of setup/config of GeoMoose vs MapGuide OS?    Any
other obvious packages I'm missing?   (I know about ka-map but don't think
it's being developed, and may not add anything over GeoMoose/MapGuide.)   In
the past, I've used ArcIMS and ArcGIS Server for such a purpose.  However,
I'm looking for an open source solution.

If all goes well, we may develop a more sophisticated application in the
future but for right now, viewing the data is most important.  Thanks for
your help.
