The geographical information web Mapper, giMapper, has been developed as an alternative to the well established open source project MapServer. We needed a way of browsing a UK map which had hot spots identifying particular places or people. The project started to use MapServer but it soon became evident that to use MapServer in the final application would require access to the server's root for installation and configuration - something we did not have. giMapper is a standalone application written entirely in HTML, javascript, PHP (v4.3+) and GD (v1.6+) and can be installed and configured entirely using FTP. It has been tested with Internet Explorer (v6.0), Firefox (v1.0) and Netscape (v7.2). While it is designed to work with most modern browsers it is not intended to support every older browser.
