Hello all,
I  am calling upon your Open Source expertise. I'm 
currently working on an  online [censored] map for a community project. I
 am trying to find the right map server or web map  services that would 
enables us to make the most of this project. I feel  a little overhelmed
 with all the different options online and thought  you could maybe make
 a few recommendations.

Here are some more details on what I am looking for.

At  its most basic, I look for a server that enables to see 
georeferenced  features on a basemap, click on a feature to display more
 information  and also edit information. Ideally I am looking for a 
mapserver  supporting WFS, enabling the display of multiple layers (that
 could be  switched on/off) supporting simple queries ( intersect, 
buffer) and  maybe also enabling links and photos.

Unfortunately there are  two main constraints: my limited 
knowledge in programming (I only know a  little python and no java 
whatsoever) and user-friendliness of the  finished platform is essential
 as it is aimed to local communities with  limited computer skills.
