The Boundless Web SDK, Powering OpenLayers with React and Redux (sponsored by Boundless)

React and Redux provide an awesome front-end development framework!
But what about making maps? OpenLayers provides an excellent map
rendering engine but doesn't play nice with React + Redux.
MapBox styles provide a clean JSON style definition.
But how to put them together? Learn how the Boundless Web SDK uses
MapBox styles, OpenLayers, React, and Redux to provide a modern
ES6 SDK for making maps.

Introduction to Boundless Server

In this introduction to Boundless Server we will explore this complete web-based geospatial software stack.

This workshop covers the advantages of using Boundless Server, looking at the open source components that go into its construction. This discussion highlights the differences between using these components individually in comparison to an integrated product.

This hands on tour of Boundless Server covers:

State of GeoWebCache

GeoWebCache is a successful OSGeo community project used in GeoServer and GeoNode. Did you also know can be run on its own though?

This presentation introduces the GeoWebCache application, the functionality it offers, and how the project is enjoying recent success. This introduction will compare GeoWebCache as a stand alone application to GeoWebCache as a component of GeoServer.

Best Practice for Serving COG Imagery using MapServer in the Cloud (sponsored by AWS)

Recently there has been quite a bit of interest in Cloud Optimized GeoTIFFs (COG) that can be built using GDAL's raster utility programs gdal_translate and gdaladdo. This work has been supported by companies such as Planet and Digital Globe. COGs are GeoTIFFS that are internally structured to support efficient HTTP range-gets (partial file requests) such that they can be used in-situ in object stores such as Amazon S3. That means its unnecessary to initially download the GeoTIFFs to a local file system before use.

MapD for Analysts: Visualizing Your Geospatial Data on GPUs

There has been an explosion of geospatial data soures and collection in recent years, and with it the need for technologies that data analysts can use to query and visualize those very large data sets interactively, exploring and taking action on the data in real-time. Using the open source MapD SQL engine and MapD analytics platform, you can eliminate waiting for slow reports, downsampling, and pre-aggregating, and put the power of the GPU to use in rendering your complex geospatial charts and plots.

Introduction to running Auto Scaling Geoserver and PostgreSQL/PostGIS in the Cloud (AWS)

This lab will provide an introduction to running GeoServer on AWS infrastructure. GeoServer is a OGC compliant implementation of a number of open standards including Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Map Service (WMS), and Web Coverage Service (WCS).
The workshop will walk you through the steps required to launch and configure an Ubuntu Linux virtual machine in the Cloud. You will install GeoServer on this instance and learn how to save the virtual machine image as your own.

R Studio as a Traditional Desktop GIS Replacement

R is a deeply open source language with a welcoming community of contributors and powerful tools for data analysis. R Studio makes doing day to day geospatial analysis a joy. The interface uses design idioms similar to traditional GIS Desktop software but with a focus on repeatability, analysis, and speed.

Drag and Drop: Open Source GeoTools ETL with Apache NiFi

Loading your GeoTools SimpleFeatures into your cloud or database never seems as easy as it should be. There's Twitter streams, FTP servers, inboxes, dropboxes, and all sorts of other data that you need to parse, convert to SimpleFeatures, and then ingest into your GeoTools datastore. Luckily, GeoMesa has teamed with HortonWorks DataFlow to provide a fully open source tool to ease the pain of ingesting data into ANY GeoTools datastore. It's as easy as drag and drop! Literally!

JavaScript all the things! Geoblaze - raster processing in js

JavaScript has become ubiquitous across many platforms. However, raster processing is still predominantly done in either desktop software or cloud platforms.

This talk introduces Geoblaze, a raster processing library that pushes the boundaries of spatial computation in javascript and introduces tools for raster analysis across a wide set of platforms, including serverless, node, and even in the browser. Geoblaze powers geotiff.io, an in-browser raster analaysis application for in-the-field raster processing. 

Learn how to use Geoblaze in your own applications!
