    In this paper we describe the software architecture of a prototype web-based GIS system for the deliver environmental research data in Ireland. The central component in this system is OpenStreetMap which provides the base layers of geographical data. An OpenStreetMap data collection campaign for our university town was carried out earlier this year yieldeding a spatially rich OpenStreetMap representation of Maynooth. Our server (OpenStreetMap database, supporting software, and specially generated map tiles) has been used by several GIS and location-based services projects in our department. One such example is a mobile device-based pedestrian navigation system is described in this paper. We describe some of the components of our server system. This includes a description of the management of the local copy of the OpenStreetMap database and the generation of sets of customised map tiles.
