Undoubtedly there are more local legends that some of you would add to this list, and feel free.

In the sixth version a number of projects have been added and the whole set of clients has been categorized in order to distinguish them better, since there are currently forty four (44) Web mapping clients in the comparison. Web mapping clients play a significant role in Geoportals of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) allowing the visualization of spatial data from several sources. Likewise, these clients may be part of Web-based Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications, in which users can directly interact with SDI services, visualize, query and integrate them with local data and GIS tools. There exists a wide variety of free and open source software (FOSS) projects that make the creation and configuration of Web mapping clients easier.
