Course Description

Web mapping focuses on disseminating and processing geographic information by means of Internet and World Wide Web. Combination of the web and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) has unlocked the potential of GIS, and put online maps and geospatial intelligence in the offices/homes of millions and the hands of billions. The increasing flexibility and interoperability of web mapping technologies has opened new opportunities for Web Based Mappers. This course teaches you how to build GIS web portal using open source GIS end to end solutions. The course is implemented together with open source GIS software including QGIS, PostGIS, GeoServer, and OpenLayers which all together can deliver the complete GIS solution. OpenLayers makes it easy to put a dynamic map in any web page. It can display map tiles and markers loaded from any source. OpenLayers has been developed to further the use of geographic information of all kinds. Participants will learn how to create browser-based map applications and display data from a variety of sources. Basic JavaScript syntax will be covered. In GeoServer software, participants will learn how to load, publish, and share geospatial data. Discussion will include navigating the GeoServer user interface, OGC web services, styling data with SLD, and tile caching with GeoWebCache. In PostGIS, participants will learn and create spatial databases, load data from a variety of sources into a spatial database, and perform queries against the data. Basic SQL syntax will be covered.
