Expert GeoServer (Packt)
Wednesday, 06 February 2019

This book looks at using the GeoServer open source, server-side software for sharing and editing geospatial data. Author Ben Mearns starts by showing how to develop a spatial analysis platform with web processing services, before moving on to more advanced topics such as tile caching. The book also shows how to produce a performant GeoServer-backed web mapping application, and how to enable authentication on the frontend and backend to protect sensitive map data, and deliver sensitive data to end users.
