FOSS4G 2023

GeoServer Orientation and Demo
06-28, 10:30–11:00 (Europe/Tirane), UBT F / N212 - Floor 3

Welcome to GeoServer, a popular web service for publishing your geospatial data using industry standards for vector, raster and mapping.

If the previous sentence made no sense to you, or if you are new to foss4g, or even just new to GeoServer, attend this talk to get pointed in the right direction!

This presentation provides a gentle introduction to FOSS4G and we will do our best to say the quiet part out loud:

  • Demo: We have learned from experience, and will introduce GeoServer using a demo.
  • Usage: Concepts using both a demo, and diagrams to connect to your data and publish as a spatial service.
  • Checklist: Preflight check-lists capturing common oversights when deploying GeoServer for the first time.
  • Value: What role GeoServer plays in your organization and what value the application provides.
  • Community: How the project is managed, and a discussion of the upcoming activities.
    Attend this presentation to get a running start on using GeoServer in your organization!
