Arcview is the planning industry standard, however Autodesk (makers of Autocad) has put out an impressive software called MapGuide. Mapguide to me looks more user-friendly for the end-user (the public in our case). Also, since Mapguide is easily compatible with Autocad it makes editing easy for Engineers (who maintain our maps). How do I convince our Planning Dept. that this is the way to go? Maybe I just don't know enough about Arcview. If you haven't seen MapGuide's end-user capabilities, check out the City of Dublin, Ohio's site http://www.dublin.oh.us/gis/index.php They have gotten national recognition for thier mapping.
What do you use, Arcview or Mapguide or another, and why?
