About this product
- DescriptionGeoServer is an open source server-side software written in Java that allows users to share and edit geospatial data. Designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards. GeoServer allows you to display your spatial information to the world. Implementing the Web Map Service (WMS) standard, GeoServer can create maps in a variety of output formats. OpenLayers, a free mapping library, is integrated into GeoServer, making map generation quick and easy. GeoServer is built on Geotools, an open source Java GIS toolkit. GeoServer Beginner's Guide gives you a kick start to build custom maps using your data without the need for costly commercial software licenses and restrictions. Even if you do t have prior GIS kwledge, you will be able to make interactive maps after reading this book. You will install GeoServer, access your data from a database, style points, lines, polygons, and labels to impress site visitors with real-time maps. Follow along through a step-by-step guide that installs GeoServer in minutes. Explore the web-based administrative interface to connect to backend data stores such as MySQL, PostGIS, MSSQL, and Oracle. Display your data on web-based interactive maps, style lines, points, polygons, and embed images to visualize this data for your web visitors. Walk away from this book with a working application ready for production. After reading the GeoServer Beginner's Guide, you will have beautiful, custom maps on your website built using your geospatial data.
- Author BiographyStefano Iacovella is a long-time GIS developer and consultant living in Rome, Italy. He also works as a GIS instructor. He has a PhD in Geology. Being a very curious person, he developed a deep knowledge of IT technologies, mainly focusing on GIS software and related standards. Starting his career as an ESRI employee, he was exposed to and became confident in proprietary GIS software, mainly the ESRI suite of products. In the last 14 years, he has been involved with open source software, integrating it with proprietary software. He loves the open source approach, and really trusts in collaboration and sharing knowledge. He strongly believes in the open source idea and constantly manages to spread it, not only in the GIS sector but also in others. He has been using GeoServer since the release of Version 1.5, configuring, deploying, and hacking it in several projects. Some of the other GFOSS projects he mainly uses and likes are GDAL/OGR, PostGIS, QGIS, and OpenLayers. Prior to this cookbook, Stefano worked on GeoServer Beginner's Guide, which covers the basics of GeoServer. When not playing with maps and geometric shapes, he loves reading about science (mainly physics and math), riding his bike, and having fun with his wife and two daughters, Alice and Luisa.

Brian Youngblood is a open source developer living in Montgomery, AL with more than a decade of experience developing, integrating, and managing high traffic websites. Brian was the Online Operations Manager and Technical Lead at the Southern Poverty Law Center for over 12 years. The SPLC is a nationally recognized nonprofit, and its websites SPLCenter.org and Tolerance.org have continued to get sharp increases in visitors year-on-year, resulting in growth in its online operations with open source. The SPLC won two Webby Awards in 2002 and 2004. Brian was also the founding partner and Chief Technology Officer for IntelliTours, a GPS-guided multimedia tour. He worked with several companies developing hardware and software including Alcorn McBride, Volkswagen, and Garmin. His work explored San Diego, Santa Cruz, Hawaii, and miles and miles of I-95 on the East Coast. Most notably, his work was featured on the cover of Entertainment Engineering magazine, Martha Stewart radio, the LA Times, and NPR. Embracing the spirit of other open source communities such as Drupal, and a combined passion for scalable GIS solutions, led him to adopt GeoServer for rapidly changing geospatial data stores.
