    5858Ka-boom seemed to be the best choice for a front end, mainly because it has a tiling mechanism that allows for smooth scrolling inside a map. I ended up choosing openlayers because it allowed me to plot points on a map using GeoRSS feeds. Worldkit is an easy to use flash-based mapping program. Nice, but I do not like flash. Geomoose is intriguing, with their focus on separating the layers of info from the map itself. I found it late in the game, so it needs more looking at.

     62I have started working with the [http://www.populareconomics.org/ussen U.S. Solidarity Economy Network] on maps and wrote a [wiki:SEN_mapping document] explaining how and why Drupal with the openlayers and views module (along with Open Street Map to draw the map) is my recommended way to make an online map now.
