Another GeoServer Roadmap update

Though it’s a bit overdue, we finally got around to updating the GeoServer Roadmap.  There’s a lot of activity going on, and we generally have a good sense of what should be completed in the next three months, with more and more vague ideas on what may be further out.  I still want to work […]

WarViews: Powered by GeoServer, OpenLayers and Google Earth

Though I admit the name made me a bit scared, Andrea Aime pointed out a really nice use of some of our favorite platforms in the ‘WarViews’ project.  No, it’s not some geolocated remote missile camera, it’s a project by the International Conflict Research (IRC) group at a Swiss university that attempts to show more […]

Introductions

Though they’ve been with us for awhile, I realized the other day that some new developers in the GeoServer community never got introduced properly.  They started working for The Open Planning Project (TOPP) a couple months ago, and have been working on some great stuff since then.  Their primary goal is to combine TOPP’s two […]

GeoServer community happenings

One thing we’ve wanted to do with this blog is use it as a forum to allow people to follow what’s going on in the world of GeoServer without having to dive in to hundreds of messages per month on the lists. I’ve been blogging long enough to know that I should never make promises […]

Overdue FOSS4G report

So it’s been way too long since we posted anything on this blog other than release announcements.  Which is not as it should be, since there’s been a ton happening in the GeoServer community.  I’m going to try to catch up with a lot of the various news in the next week or two, but […]

GeoServer Tutorials from FOSS4G

Just quick note, the GeoServer team just put on a new workshop at FOSS4G.  The conference is just getting started, but after we finish up here we’ll work in the coming weeks to make those materials more generic and available to all.  For those who want a preview, or those in the workshop who want […]
