Abstract: Sri Lanka is still in its infancy of adoption of GIS solutions and not yet experiencing the use of web-GIS. The main reasons behind not adopting such are the high cost of proprietary web-GIS technologies and technical unawareness. These prevent the application of web-GIS for the betterment of developing countries including Sri Lanka. This application proposed a framework for the adoption of open source solutions for web based GIS applications with the use of existing digital datasets of Sri Lanka. The technology selected includes the UMN MapServer, map server PosrgreSQL/PostGIS databases and Apache web server, all are FOSS tools. A prototype is developed for land usage analyzing application for Sri Lanka . The other possible directions for adoption of the same architecture for web-GIS solutions in the context of Sri Lanka are analyzed.
