Welcome to MapServer¶
MapServer is an Open Source platform for publishing spatial data and interactive mapping applications to the web. Originally developed in the mid-1990’s at the University of Minnesota, MapServer is released under an MIT-style license, and runs on all major platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X). MapServer is not a full-featured GIS system, nor does it aspire to be.
The MapServer Project Steering Committee (PSC), sanctioned by OSGeo, manages and administers the project which is maintained, improved, and supported by developers and users from around the world. See the community activities page for mailing lists, etc.
2015-06-26 - MapServer 7.0.0-beta2, MapServer 6.4.2 and TinyOWS 1.1.1 are released
This is a security release to mitigate the effects of an issue in older versions of libxml2 (<2.9). You are strongly recommended to update your systems if using an unpatched version of libxml2 < 2.9 as it may lead to the information disclosure of any file readable by the user running the mapserver services.
MapServer 7.0 beta2 is being simultaneously released and contains a number of fixes to issues that were discovered during the beta1 test phase. Please help us pushing out a final 7.0 by testing this beta and reporting any issues you may have.
