Course Description

Geoserver is open-source server software that allows you to publish your geospatial data as a web service. This course will explain what GeoServer is, why and when you need it. We will explore the basics of GeoServer using sample data on a local host version installed on your. computer.  Then we will walk through the steps of setting up a project in GeoServer using your own data.

We will see how to set up GeoServer on a hosting service in the cloud, load your data to it, configure users accounts and set their privileges to view and edit your data, filter your data with SQL views and CQL, and finally create your own web mapping applications that use your data from GeoServer so that you can share it with the world.

GIS Programming

I have been programming and working with database applications for over 30 years, and specializing in geospatial applications for over 20 years.  I am a believer in the 80/20 pareto principle which suggests that you only need to understand 20% of a subject in order to do 80% of your work. My goal in all my courses is to teach at the level of that 20% sweet spot and to provide my students with the background and the tools they need to learn the rest of what they need on their own.
