GOTS = Government Off The Shelf – states have access to a pool of software to use as a basis for systems via certain channels. E.g., at the federal level, the newest USGS National Map is based on a project that was developed at NGA.
Not disagreeing that technical product selection isn’t the beginning, need to define your goals, build your ecosystem – but that’s what the OP asked about …

Still not really asking the right questions. Building a digital parcel ecosystem is much larger than web platform tech choices. Otherwise it becomes moot without the content.

Not an Apple fan, AM an SU fan, so I’ll play orange for this round. Of different product selections (FOSS, COTS, GOTS in this case, I suppose) to use as the base for the project that was described, was what I was thinking.
The question is still too broad, too generic. Selections and technology are secondary. What you want to accomplish is primary. If there is something that a software/technology cannot do, and *that* is exactly what you need to do, then you *have* to look elsewhere.
How about restricting the scope of the inquiry -- perhaps a tradeoff between different map servers, or between different spatial data storage mechanisms, heck, perhaps even between Windows or Unix or, ahem, cough, Macs. Just trying to figure out the difference between FOSS, COTS, GOTS (I have no idea what the heck GOTS is, but I gots some COTS and FOSS) without specifying the capabilities one wishes to deliver is a very amorphous exercise.

Stepping back, does anyone know of any published studies where somebody (without an ax to grind) really surveyed the marketplace and did a tradeoff analysis?
Everyone has an axe to grind, no matter how blunt the axe might be.
That said, analysis of tradeoff between what and what, asked the apple of the orange?
