Try http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu for Mapserver. It's a very strong, very
free, open source internet map server application. You can run it on
most unix platforms, including Linux/Apache systems (it even works on
win9x,NT,2000). Your datasets can be shapefiles, SQL databases, and SDE
at this point I'm pretty sure. Mapserver enjoys solid devotion from an
international community of users and developers, though it is primarily
maintained and improved by Stephen Lime at the Univ. of Minnesota. You
can extend its capabilities via Perl, Python, Java and PHP, among other
languages. There are many examples out there from which you can build
your own site, and there are tutorials. I think you'll find that it's
capable of most, if not all, of the needs addressed in this thread.
