What kind of softwares do you have?
Since you are using the softwares produced by ESRI ,I'm assuming you are using ArcIMS or ArcGIS server?


Thanks for your quick reply. Actually I am open to these two softwares. Can you please explain the advantages of both of them.


ArcGIS Server is a server-based deployment of the ArcObjects component library (including extensions). This new product is for developers who want to build shared server applications that contain advanced GIS capabilities in both a client/server environment and a Web services environment. ArcObjects provides the source of the serverside functionality.

In contrast, ArcIMS is ESRI's Internet solution for the publishing of maps, data, and metadata. Its goal is to deliver data to many users on the Web. ArcIMS is designed for high throughput, high-performance mapping, metadata services, data streaming, and a variety of focused functions over the Internet (via XML, HTTP, etc.). ArcIMS is aimed toward developers looking for a traditional way to serve maps on the Internet and also build custom Internet solutions

There is a table at the bottom of http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgisserver/about/overview.html that outlines major differences in functionality.
