Welcome to Mapbuilder, a modern dynamic standards-based web mapping client . Supporting the Open Geospatial consortium (OGC) standards, it will allow you to display maps from many sources that comply with their Web Map Service (WMS) standard or Web Feature Service (WFS) standard. WMS allows you to request maps as rendered images (normally using JPEG,PNG or GIF) from any suitable map server and WFS allows you to request geographic elements as XML which can then be rendered and manipulated using mapBuilder.
As well as allowing you to access other mapping sources, mapBuilder works seemlessly with OGC compliant mapping servers such as GeoServer and MapServer, both of which manage mapping data and present WMS and WFS services on the web. Using a mapping server in addition to mapBuilder you will be able to both render your own maps, and also implemt functionality allowing your users to update, add and delete geographic features from the mapping database on the server.
