Web mapping applications from a non-developers perspective

Andrew Parker has created a very nice wiki which presents the necessary steps in order to create one web mapping application:

- installing Linux (Ubuntu), Apache HTTP, and MapServer,
- installing PostGIS database server with the PostGIS spatial extension,
- creating spatially enabled tables in PostgreSQL/PostGIS
- importing and/or exporting shapefiles to/from PostGIS, and
- building a basic web map using MapFish.

Thanks Andrew for simplifying the access to these technologies !
