Yesterday The MapServer Foundation announced the availability of the new (and free!) MapServer Enterprise sponsored by AutoDesk.
They state that it also supports .NET, which sounds like goodies for a .NET/GIS guy like me, so I definitely had to check it out.
I must admit that their ASP.NET examples shocked my completely. I can’t recall seeing that poor .NET code the last couple of years. It’s all ASP-style spaghetti-code and ridiculously poor implemented. I wouldn’t be surprised that if you rename the file-extensions to .asp, it would still run :-) Although I’m still exited by this new release, I can’t help thinking that if this is the best they can do in a .NET environment, what does the actual server-code look like?
