I´m looking for a "piece of software" to visualize some flood/water level sensor data on a simple map and project it to a big screen in our central flood-response-headquaters.
This data renderer should manage the following things/features:
- display simple vector and raster layers which come from formats like Shape, GML, KML, GeoTIFF, and so on. (BTW: PostGIS and so on isn´t needed because we are not able to offer a distaster proof geodatabase environment)
- fetch some sensor data from another (disaster proof because it´s the sensor network) ODBC Database Connection
- perhaps some simple navigation tools for zooming in and out and panning around
- refresh the map display automagically every, let´s say, 10 seconds
I thought of a local install of UMN Mapserver and a simple but self refreshing Webclient which connects to the UMN on localhost, but perhaps you have much better ideas?
I´ll be grateful for every small idea, thanks a lot in advance.
