This past week a few of the GeoServer developers gathered for a code sprint in Vienna, Austria. The sprint was planned by some of the OpenLayers developers and they graciously allowed us to join the party and share the venue for the week. Attendees from the GeoServer community included Andrea Aime, Niels Charlier, Justin Deoliveira, [...]

Notes, tips, and brain dumps by the developers. Largely technical but quite interesting to those interested in software design and GIS.
A feature that has become quite popular in GeoServer over the last year has been the RESTful configuration plug-in (“restconfig”), that allows one to configure a GeoServer instance programmatically via simple HTTP operations. Recently the issue of security has come up with regards to the restconfig plug-in. Essentially it boils down to the fact that [...]
Lately, I have been working on adding support for the TIME attribute for GeoServer in WMS GetMap requests via an improvement of the ImageMosaic raster store: http://yourserver/geoserver/wms?REQUEST=GetMap&…&TIME=2009-12-12,2009-12-13&… You can get some more details on the GeoSolutions blog.
I am pleased to announce that we are organizing a “Birds of a Feather” session (what’s that?) at the FOSS4G 2009 Conference in Sydney, Australia. This session is to gather together everyone who is interested in discussing the past, present, and (bright) future of GeoServer. The session will be held on Thursday 22nd October, late [...]
I’ve ported the printing module, previously available only for GeoServer 2.0, to GeoServer 1.7.x. I’ve created a wiki page for those who want to check it out. PS: This post marks the end of my time interning with OpenGeo this summer. I’m glad to have had this opportunity to work on GeoServer, and hope that [...]
Remember the good ol’ days, when the only maps you had were pieces of paper? The past is now! Hi, I’m Alan, and I’m interning with OpenGeo this summer. My first order of business has been plugging MapFish‘s printing capability into GeoServer as a community module; right now we’re releasing a developer preview. The module [...]
The GeoServer Team is happy to announce GeoServer 2.0-beta1, the first beta release of the 2.0 series. The primary focus of version 2.0 is the new user interface. This interface addresses many suggestions for usability improvements, including paging and filtering of lists of information, batch removal of layers, and the elimination of the Submit-Apply-Save workflow. [...]
Business reporting is a common need in various organisations. Most of the time, it is built upon tables and simple charts, such as pie or bar charts. Yet, sometimes, you need to add an extra dimension into it, in particular, geographic distribution. In some cases a thematic map does the job nicely, but if you [...]
A new post on the Raster Symbolizer tips & tricks, this time I am going to show how to build an RGB image using 8 bits or unsigned 16 bits multi band coverages. I have been playing lately with some remote sensing data for the geoSDI project specifically the emissive subdataset coming from the MODIS [...]
