The GeoMOOSE project is client-side code that uses a variety of JavaScript,
XML, and DHTML technologies to interface with other web-clients. The primary
target of GeoMoose is for integration with the UofM MapServer, but it is not dependent
upon it for operation.

Design objectives include:
    * Code must be developed in an Services Oriented Architecture.
    * Configureability for users.
    * Easy maintenance for data owners.
    * A client interface for MapServer, but designed to be open to other server engines.
    * Targeted use cases for local governments.
