Using QGIS Layer Styles in GeoServer

Using QGIS Layer Styles in GeoServer

GIS, QGIS, Software, Tutorials
GeoServer provides us with the functionality of styling our layers to match our preferences. However, many are the times that many GeoServer users face problems while publishing their layers. Styling in GeoServer should be an easy task when doing web applications or publishing your GIS layers via GeoServer. [caption id="attachment_181" align="aligncenter" width="390"] Expected Results[/caption] Today, I will focus on how to apply same styles for layers in GeoServer as in your QGIS project. Here are a few steps that can be followed to achieve the expected results. Load a PostGIS layer in the map canvas in QGIS using the Add PostGIS layers option in Manage Layers toolbar.   The Add PostGIS tabledialog box appears and it gives the option to add a connection to our PostGIS tables Add connection Fill…

Adding layers from GeoServer in QGIS

Adding layers from GeoServer in QGIS

GeoServer, GIS, QGIS, Software, Web-GIS
In a GIS, the ability to handle more data formats is of key priority while developing the system. This gives the GIS users a wider variety of formats to choose from during their analysis. QGIS has implemented this by allowing users to add data from many sources and in many formats. Loading a WMS, WFS or a WCS is one of the vital abilities for users carrying out web mapping operations with their data. The three formats of data can be loaded easily directly from GeoServer into QGIS. First we need to establish a secure connection between QGIS and GeoServer. Load the WMS/WMTS dialog window at Layers >> Add WMS/WMTS Layer on the Menu (QGIS) or by selecting the Add WMS/WMTS layer from the Manage layers toolbar. Select “New” to…

Open Source Web Mapping

Open Source Web Mapping

GIS, Web-GIS
During my second year of college, I came across this technology where maps could be rendered online (web mapping) and users could interact with the maps for visualization and analysis. I found this technology interesting and decided to give it a shot. I encountered the “usual” barriers experienced by any beginner in coding. Then, I came across these interesting and well explained platforms for web mapping (Open Source platforms). After a couple months of research, I settled for ExtJS, OpenLayers, GeoExt, GeoServer, PHP, QGIS, PostgreSQL /PostGIS and HTML/CSS as my development platforms for my web maps. I knew this was a huge project for me to undertake but always motivated by the capabilities the platforms offered me. Spending days and nights on-line trying to come up with something meaningful was…
