MapServer is an Open Source geographic data rendering engine written in C. Beyond browsing GIS data, MapServer allows you create “geographic image maps”, that is, maps that can direct users to content. For example, the Minnesota DNR Recreation Compass provides users with more than 10,000 web pages, reports and maps via a single application. The same application serves as a “map engine” for other portions of the site, providing spatial context where needed. For more live examples, please see the MapServer Site Gallery.

MapServer awalnya dikembangkan oleh proyek ForNet University of Minnesota (UMN) yang bekerja sama dengan NASA dan Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR). Kemudian dikelola lewat TerraSIP, sebuah proyek yang disponsori NASA antara UMN dan konsorsium pengelolaan lahan.

MapServer is one of the founding projects of the OSGeo foundation, and is maintained by a growing number of developers (nearing 20) from around the world. It is supported by a diverse group of organizations that fund enhancements and maintenance, and administered within OSGeo by the MapServer Project Steering Committee made up of developers and other contributors. All source code is openly available via GitHub.
