Event Details

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.



This course is being offered as a webinar. The course material was originally developed for a full day workshop, which included full exercises that students would work through. For the 3-hour version an expert instructor will lead you through the workshop material and demonstrate exercises. Students can either follow along to or complete at their own pace after the class.

While the instructor demonstrates the exercises and works through the material students will have ample opportunity to ask questions and get direct feedback. The instructor will be assisted by an expert 'helper' who can answer questions one-on-one.
The session has a limit of 25 participants, and includes dedicated question and answer time at the conclusion of the course. Afterwards students will receive a video of the session, a copy of all presented materials, instructions on where to get additional training materials, and a certificate of participation. This specific course material is only available to students of this class, delivered in person or through webinar.

The future of OpenGeo is Boundless. 

Boundless is the world leader in developing and maintaining open source geospatial software.

We use a community-led, spatial IT based approach to build software that helps organizations manage geospatial data on the web. Our software and maintenance agreements, which include support and professional services, provide a lower cost, more flexible and modern alternative to the geospatial industry’s existing proprietary and closed source model.

We ensure that the geospatial community reaps the tremendous benefits of open source. Because we believe that the future of geospatial is not just open. It is Boundless.
