The course will teach you advanced techniques to get more out of your GeoServer deployment, increasing the tools at your disposal to solve real world problems. This course is intended for users who are already comfortable installing, configuring and serving geospatial information with GeoServer. Topics include:
- Introduction to the REST configuration API, which enables programmatic control over GeoServer to automate common tasks like setting up new layers or configuring data sources.
- Techniques to filter data returned in WMS and WFS responses, using CQL and XML filters.
- Creating dynamic layers defined by custom database queries using SQL Views. Includes ways to pass parameters from the web application to define the layer on the fly as well as cross layer views with SQL joins.
- Configuring data with elevation or time dimensions for use in WMS.
- Introduction to spatial processing with the Web Processing Service.
- Heatmaps, Contours and Point Stacking with rendering transformations
There are no required pre-requisites, but we recommend this course to those who already feel comfortable with GeoServer. Our Introduction to GeoServer workshop is the best starting point. Please read it over to be sure you feel adept with the information there, or go through the workshop before the Advanced GeoServer class. If you are interested in having a web-based training on Introduction to GeoServer please contact us and we will try to schedule a class soon.
This course is intended for those interested in bringing more open source capabilities in to their existing spatial infrastructure. Stand-alone the OpenGeo Suite compares favorably to other spatial server stacks, but its biggest advantage flexibility. OpenGeo Suite has the ability to adapt to complement any existing deployment. This course will dive in to a number of those capabilities. Topics include:
- Oracle, SQL Server
- ArcGIS Server
- MrSID, JP2000, NITF,
- Esri File Geodatabases, OpenStreetMap and MapInfo tab files.
We will also examine different options for client software, including ArcGIS Desktop, QGIS, Google Earth and Mobile options. The class is delivered in an interactive online environment, so you're free to ask questions about your unique hybrid architecture challenges.
