MXD2map is a free converter for the generation of UMN
MapServer-compatible Map files from ESRI ArcGIS MXD files. This program
offers the possibility making the map design as usual in the ArcGIS
Desktop GIS. A configuration file for UMN MapServer can be generated at
the touch of a button. UMN MapServer provides the MXD project as an
OGC-compliant WMS or WFS service. This provides a simple yet
cost-effective way to publish existing spatial data including design
requirements as WMS / WFS service.

"The realization of such a tool helps us tremendously in creation of
OGC-compliant WMS services based on UMN MapServer. The usual work on
the desktop with ArcGIS remains unaffected and the benefits of the fast
UMN MapServer can be used easily for intranet/internet
representation.", explains Jörg Gerdes, Head of IT of the German
Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in Hamburg/Germany. The
BSH has been ordered the initial development of MXD2map from Intevation

The BSH is an agency within the German Federal Ministry for Transport,
Building and Urban Affairs with offices in Hamburg and Rostock. The BSH
is an important maritime service provider of the federal government and
provides the maritime geodata center for digital and analog (sea) map
