QGIS Server

With QGIS Server it is easy to publish QGIS desktop projects as identical WMS in the internet or intranet.

QGIS Server provides a web map service (WMS) using the same libraries as the QGIS desktop application. Maps and print templates created in QGIS desktop can be published as web maps simply by copying the QGIS project file into the server directory. The resulting web maps look exactly the same as in the desktop. QGIS Server is usually run as CGI/FastCGI module within the Apache Webserver.

QGIS Server also works as a WFS and WFS-T server. These services are easy to administer with QGIS Desktop. QGIS Server WFS supports all vector formats supported by QGIS.
