The name SUAS MapServer comes from Stuttgart University Applied Science, it sounds also like [sju:as] "Show Us". The former name of SUAS MapServer is PHPMyWMS.

This open source map server publishes geodata according to OGC's WMS 1.1.1 specification. Currently, the server supports the WMS and WFS, and later for WCS.

The solution is based on open source tools, i.e. Apache web server, PHP with libraries, MySQL database together with phpMyAdmin and Ajax, XML.

The server dynamically generates vector map files in SVG, SVGT, SWF and PDF formats and raster map files in PNG, JPEG, GIF and WBMP formats from spatial data in a database depending on the request parameters given by the client. You can use ONLY one SVG file as data source to input it into the database.
