The MapFaces project is working to develop the library by expanding its functionality and adding new components. The project is currently proceeding as an informal collaboration of contributors. Developers interested in participating should see the project pages for more information. MapFaces was started by Geomatys (http://www.geomatys.com/) in order to build increasingly powerful, web based, geographic mapping clients.
