ABSTRACT
The main objective of this paper was to research the use of Web 2.0 techniques and freely available geospatial tools as a base for infor-mation-focused applications. The investigation was conducted, based on a prototype development of a project portal for the Fichtner Group. The methods adopted include; developing both server and client-sides of the application with Adobe Flex Builder. Toad for Oracle was used to administer and maintain the Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). The server-side programming language was Java whilst ActionScript was used to create the client logic. MXML was used to describe the user interface and behaviour. The Application Programming Interface (API) used for developing the application was the Google MAP API for Flash (Flex).
