Introduction

MapGuide Open Source is a free Web-based mapping solution. Autodesk developed MapGuide and then released it to the open source community in 2006. The Open Source model means that anyone can get access to the MapGuide code, and can work on it to make improvements.

Autodesk also released MapGuide Enterprise in concert with MapGuide Open Source. While the two products are theoretically separate, their development paths mirror each other. Changes to one MapGuide often find their way into the other. The main difference between the two products is that Autodesk supplies support for the Enterprise version, while the open source community provides support for the open source version.

MapGuide Studio

A trial version is [http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index? id=7176611&siteID=123112 available online].
