GeoServer’s Job is to Answer Questions

-”Talk” to GeoServer over a network. (HTTP)

- Ask GeoServer about spatial data that it can read (Shapefiles, PostGIS, ArcSDE, Oracle, etc.)

…in a language it understands, (WFS, WMS, WCS)

…and it will answer in pictures (JPEG, PNG, GIF, PDF)

…or in words (WFS, KML/KMZ, GML).

system component data storage
System Component: Data Storage
  • Purpose

– stores attribute, geometry and projection information

– performs spatial calculations (i.e. intersect, buffer)

Examples

– ESRI ArcSDE + relational database

• proprietary + proprietary, limited spatial functions

– Oracle Spatial

• proprietary, rich set of spatial functions

– MySQL

• open source, basic geometry storage

– PostGIS

• open source extension to the PostgreSQL database

• implements OGC spatial functions

postgis postgresql
PostGIS + PostgreSQL
  • Function

– Vector data storage

– Spatially-enabled relational database

  • Compare to:

– ESRI ArcSDE + SQLServer (or other RDBMS)

– Oracle Spatial

  • Composed of:

– PostgreSQL (OS relational database)

– PostGIS (OS spatial extension)
