What we are all about... in detail!
These white papers represent best practices, implementation, or evaluation of our software.
GeoServer in a production environment can be evaluated according to three criteria: reliability, availability, and performance. This paper discusses methods for implementing production grade GeoServer deployments.
GeoWebCache is gaining popularity as enterprises look to accelerate their online maps. In this interview, Arne Kepp, the project founder and OpenGeo team member, provides historical background and technical details.
The OpenGeo Suite is built from several open source projects (OpenLayers, GeoWebCache, GeoServer, PostGIS) that each provide distinct functionality. This paper explains what each component does and how they interact with other components.
This white paper compares the relative strengths and weaknesses of closed source geospatial web services software, open source (unsupported) alternatives, and supported open source — namely the OpenGeo Suite.
This is the first paper in a series of three that propose a new approach to working with spatial data, recommending a shift from treating spatial data simply as data to considering it as programmers do source code.
This is the the third paper in a series of three desribing OpenGeo’s vision for a distributed versioning system. This paper describes our proposed work path toward a fully realized infrastructure of distributed versioning tools for geospatial.
This paper is the second in a series of three which into the technology necessary to apply distributed versioning systems for source code control to geospatial information.
This paper outlines how the OpenGeo Suite Enterprise Edition augments the innovation of open source software communities with the testing, certification, and maintenance necessary to create and maintain reliable, long-term enterprise production web services.
Since 2001, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has been engaged in developing a set of standards for web-enabling sensors and sensor observations. Version 1.0 of the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards were approved and released in 2007. Versions 2.0 of these standards have either been approved, or will be approved by Fall 2011.
The SDI model of distributed service providers can fall apart when services or connectivity are unreliable. National infrastructure providers can increase SDE reliability by providing a maintained caching infrastructure on top of distrobuted services.
