Step-By-StepTutorial: Open Source Web GIS

Just came across this great tutorial published last week in the International Journal of Health Geographics, called Web GIS in practice IV: publishing your health maps and connecting to remote WMS sources using the Open Source UMN MapServer and DM Solutions MapLab, by Maged N Kamel Boulos and Kiyoshi Honda.

The title sure is a mouthful, but this nicely laid out tutorial makes me want to explore, really for the first time, alternatives to ArcIMS. Exploring is fun and this tutorial takes a lot of the hard work out for you. Here is an excerpt from the abstract:
"By following the accompanying step-by-step tutorial instructions, interested readers running mainstream Microsoft® Windows machines and with no prior technical experience in Web GIS or Internet map servers will be able to publish their own health maps on the Web and add to those maps additional layers retrieved from remote WMS servers."
I found it especially interesting that all of the screenshots as you go through the tutorial show a Mac running Windows applications. I'll try this on a Windows PC and see whether this tutorial works as smoothly as it seems.

In case you can not find it, here is the link for the tutorial, called Additional File 1. Took me a few moments to find it.

Excellent tutorial - thanks for posting the links!!

If this is "Web GIS in practice IV", I'm assuming there are parts I, II, & III out there somewhere?? I did some digging, but couldn't find them... If someone out there has links to the rest of the series, please post them!
