- You will learn how to install Geoserver,
- Load GIS data into Geoserver
- Serve vector, raster, and attribute data on the Internet with Geoserver
- Serve data stored in Postgres and PostGIS on the Internet
- Create a client based browser application using OpenLayers 3.0
- Create an application that allows client and server interaction with GIS data.
- We will be serving data from Postgres and PostGIS, so you should have that installed - you can use my Enterprise GIS training video to get up to speed on Postgres and PostGIS.
Do you want to learn how to build an Internet Map Server application using free and open source GIS? Do you want that server to display raster, vector and attribute information and perform spatial analysis and database queries over the Internet? Do you want to learn how to connect your map server to Postgres and PostGIS. If so, this course is for you. I will walk you step-by-step through the process of installing Geoserver, loading data, creating server side analytical processes, and finally show you how to render the data on the client side using Openlayers 3.0. Don't be afraid - this is a painless step-by-step approach that anyone can learn with my course.
When you are done with this course, you'll have the basics down. Now it's up to you to create impressive Internet mapping sites!
- This course is for people who want to learn how to create Internet Map Server applications.
- Client server and Internet applications are fairly complicated, so the users should be familiar with using computers and interacting with applications on the Internet.
- Students should not be afraid to do a little bit of scripting to actually make the maps more responsive.
- This course is also good for managers who might not want to actually build an Internet Map Server themselves, but might want to learn how it is done so they can communicate better with developers.
We are now going to get pretty sophisticated, and begin serving data out of Postgres. This is the stuff the high paid consultants all do - but don't worry, it's not that hard. I'm going to show you how to do it.
Don't forget to download the Postgres backup file - that way you can work alongside me.
In this lecture you are going to learn how to bring in our own layers from Geoserver. These will be static layers, but you'll get the idea of how layers are added. We'll also introduce a new wrinkle: adding a layer with SQL parameters.
