Dynamically updating maps via JavaScript - GPS, KML, etc.

Hello all,

I have a client who is in need of mimicking their ArcGIS desktop version via a webapp.  Currently we have a database consisting of various entries dealing with GPS point placement, layering, etc and would like to somehow bring this functionality to the web, even minimally. 

Essentially, if I select parameters the run against the database such as temperature, location, time intervals, etc. - the webapp app queries the database, pulling GPS data, and then displaying points and so forth on the map on the page after the user hits the "Update Map" button.

I have yet to find any good examples of something similar of this being done - i.e. HTML querying and map updating in real time instead of just pulling/pre-loading from some KML/CSV on a distant server.

Thank you so much for your time.  Any help will be sincerely appreciated!
