Introduction to GeoServer

GeoServer is an open source server that allows users to share and publish spatial data over the web.

In this tutorial, attendees will learn how to load, publish, style, and share spatial data with GeoServer. Discussion will include navigating the GeoServer user interface, loading and publishing data, OGC web services, and styling.

This is a popular workshop geared toward those with no prior GeoServer experience. Familiarity with basic GIS concepts is suggested.

Please note this is a hands on workshop and participants are asked to bring their own laptop. To prepare please ensure you laptop is ready with Oracle VirtualBox installed. We will be running a virtual machine with an installation of the GeoServer during the course.
