There are several options how to configure Web Map Service using several<br />map servers. GeoServer is one of most popular map servers nowadays.<br />GeoServer is able to read data from several sources. Very popular data<br />source is ESRI Shapefile. It is well documented and most of software<br />for geodata processing is able to read and write data in this format.<br />Another very popular data store is PostgreSQL/PostGIS object-relational<br />database. Both data sources has advantages and
