Take a look at this: http://gimodig.fgi.fi/index.php

I'm not working in the project but I know, and you can find it out from 
that website, that they are using FOSS (PostGIS for example). I'm not 
sure if they will publish the prototype they are producing as FOSS  but 
at least part of the deliverables are available as pdf's.
