Map server in OpenGL

can you suggest me how to implement mapping between a Map Server and an OpenGL window.
any suggestions in this regard will be welcomed

More detail is needed to even take a shot at a response.

Sounds like you need a display app but don’t have one (?)

actually i m looking to displaying .shp files in OpnGL on Linux platform.
i have gone through the details of shape files but still could not find any way how to use them.
so any help in this regard will be great
