Calling all students for Google Summer of Code 2009

The Google Summer of Code is upon us! (Yes, it does seem like we just finished SoC 2008.) GeoServer is once again a part of this process and we have a list of projects posted for anyone who is interested.

We are assuming all students interested in working on GeoServer will have solid Java knowledge, but no geospatial or GIS knowledge is required (although it will not hurt).

We’ve got lots of good ideas posted, from styling maps with CSS to integration with NASA WorldWind and more. The deadline for applications is April 3rd, so if you are interested in contributing, please see the OSGeo page on Summer of Code, or feel free to email the GeoServer developers list.

    It would be nice if the style system was abstracted out so you can plug in your own. I’m not exactly sure how practical that is. But I was toying with some of my own styling ideas and it would be nice to be able to drop it into GeoServer…
