This research illustrated the framework of Open Source MapServer and addressed the methods generating flash map with Mapserver plus Ming. We showed one case study of open source web mapping, in which our enhanced flash mapping system served Global Vector Map Level 0 on the web. This methodology has been documented as a tutorial on the official site of MapServer at University of Minnesota.
