GeoServer - Driving Spatial Data Applications. A core component of the Geospatial Web
Online maps are in demand like never before. Applications ranging from real estate directories showcasing available rental properties to routing sites that allow people to easily find your home or business with no knowledge of the surrounding area. Behind many of these applications is GeoServer.
GeoServer is an open source application server, written in Java, that allows users to share and edit geospatial data. Designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards such as those published by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)
GeoServer implements the Web Map Service (WMS) standard and can create maps in a variety of output formats. This interface provides client applications and sites with the ability to request one or more data sets in an area of interest and receive a cartographically consistent, multi-layer, rendered map as a single image. It also conforms to the Web Feature Service (WFS) standard, which permits the actual sharing and editing of the geospatial data. This provides...more
LISAsoft has again supported the Bureau of Meteorology in the next phase of deploying Australian Geofabric web services.
The Geofabric is a suite of products that describe important hydrological features such as rivers, water bodies, aquifers and monitoring points. By detailing the spatial relationships between these hydro-features and how they are connected, models can be developed to show how water is stored, transported and used...more
This course consists of a three day module followed by a two day module designed to make participants familiar with developing applications using the uDig Software Development Kit. The course is often taught on customer premises.
The course is designed for Java programmers with an interest in developing spatial capabilities for existing programs, or alternatively, for developing new applications that...more
