GeoServer used in fun and interesting ways - FOSS4GNA 2023

GeoServer used in fun and interesting ways - FOSS4GNA 2023

GeoServer is the start of so many great open source success stories.

This talk introduces the core GeoServer application and explores the ecosystem that has developed around this beloved OSGeo application. Our presentation draws on the GeoServer ecosystem for use-cases and examples of how the application has been used successfully by a wide range of organizations.

Each use-case highlights a capability of GeoServer providing an overview of the technology drawn from practical examples.

- Andrea iAme is on hand to share success stories highlighting GeoServer use in managing vulnerable ecosystems, agriculture information management, and marine data management.
- Jody Garnett will look at how GeoServer technology powers cloud services
- Gabriel will look at am amazing remixes for Cloud Native GeoServer
- GeoServer technology powering the OSGeo community, including GeoNode, geOrchestra
- A showcase of examples collected from our user list

Attend this talk to learn what GeoServer is good for out-of-the-box, and for inspiration on what is possible using GeoServer and the FOSS4G community.
