    Well, here are two extremes. Others hopefully will chime in with a middle
    ground:

    1. ArcGIS - Expensive ($2500) but very powerfull. You can either build
    extensions to their product in VB (6 or .Net) or C#, or you can build an app
    based on their objects. Your customer then must by the product. Big gotch:
    their upgrades often break functionality, even going from 9.1 to 9.2 broke
    major features.

    2. Google Earth - Cheap (Free) but fairly functional mapping and the api
    lets you launch and zoom to features. KML is a well documented xml format.

    It really depends on how much GIS versus just mapping you need.

    What do you want to do?

    You might use MapPoint (desktop, stand alone -- or webservice), Visual
    Earth, Google Earth, Tatsugis, and others.
