Introduction to GeoServer
07-01, 09:00–13:00 (Europe/Tallinn), Room 246

GeoServer is a much loved open-source project and one of the most popular web mapping services in the world. This workshop provides a gentle hands-on introduction in setting up and enjoying GeoServer.

This workshop covers the advantages of using GeoServer; looking at the abilities of this open-source technology.

This session is a great way to get started, geared towards those with no prior open source experience. Familiarity with GIS concepts is recommended for attendees, and you are welcome to bring your own data.

We will start with a demonstration of GeoServer installation and touch on system requirements and installation of extensions

  • Hands-on publication of spatial data (vector, raster and database).
  • GeoServer styling and web mapping use
  • Preflight check-lists making sure your datasets, and web services, are ready for use.
