Is there such a thing as a mapping framework/API that would allow one to create their own maps?
For example, let's say I have a large building, with a few hundred cubicles. And I want to create a (web) browseable map. So it should look and feel and act just like google maps, but the thing being mapped is my building, and instead of addresses, it's people's desk. I should search for "mike curwen', and the little maps zooms to my cubicle.
But because we're a financial services company, and we have collectors and sometimes have to repo assets that people feel are theirs (but is actually ours).... we wouldn't want it to be a publicly-browseable map.
I'm just looking for something hostable on our intranet for employee use.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
