High speeds? On a web application?
That usually means JavaScript and Ajax.

That's a non trivial application. It sounds a lot like Google maps?

Have you ever, just for fun, taken a look at the page source on a Google 
maps web page? You probably won't need all of the features of Google 
Maps but it might give you some idea of the scale of your challenge!

Now, accessing a map and displaying it and even making it mouse aware, 
that's a much easier task, but it may not be "high speed"...
