In our implementation of the interactive cartography for geophysical data visualization via the Internet we use Linux-based Open-Source technologies. The choice was made for the following reasons:
On the server side we use the Apache web-server, the Tomcat application (JSP) server, Axis web-services (JAX-RPC) container, relational (SQL) database management system MySQL, and for GIS the (OpenGIS compliant) server MapServer. All these products are ported to most typical computing platforms, which allows to develop and install them on servers running Linux, Windows, Solaris, BSD, etc.
