I am trying to improve some of our online mapping tools. Currently, they are hosted using an esri mapping server. Our data is stored in a MySql database linked to district level shapefiles based on a unique district ID.
This current setup is not useful for individuals who want to access our maps in areas with low bandwidth and it is very expensive to maintain.
It seems that StatPlanet might meet our needs, providing the option for an offline solution.
Is it possible to link data from MySql directly to shapefiles?
I notice that many of the examples provided are at the country level, our maps are district level global maps (very large). Can StatPlanet handle this size?
Thanks for your advise,
