Course Materials at Boundless¶
Boundless is devoted to building and supporting tools that help organizations share their information online. We believe that access to knowledge is a fundamental good, so we make our training materials available online under an open document license, for everyone to use and reuse. If you require more hands on training please visit our education center to see what courses we offer.
The tutorials below are practical walk-throughs of actual application development examples from start to finish, demonstrating different aspects of Suite functionality and the kinds of problems the Suite can solve.
- Building a GeoNames Heat Map
This application displays a web-based dynamic heat map, based on querying a database of two million geographic names points for the United States. DEMO
- Building a Census Map
- LIDAR Analysis and Visualization
This tutorial walks through loading and analyzing LIDAR data, and visualizing it in 3D using KML and Google Earth.
The following are actual course materials given at our various training classes in New York City and at conferences around the world. As our list of courses grows, we will be posting more materials here.
This course will introduce attendees to the OpenGeo Suite, a complete web mapping solution. The course will include an introduction to spatial analysis with PostGIS, loading and serving data with GeoServer, map optimization with GeoWebCache, styling, composing, and publishing maps with GeoExplorer, and creating your own web map applications with OpenLayers and GeoExt. Also available as a Download.
As presented at FOSS4G 2011, this workshop introduces the PostGIS spatial database. Installation, loading data, configuration, spatial SQL queries, indexing, tuning and viewing are among the topics touched on in this overview workshop. Also available as a Download.
Updated for 2013. Learn to load, style, and publish maps and data using GeoServer. Also available as a Download.
First presented at FOSSGIS 2011, this workshop introduces GeoExt as a web mapping frontend to OGC Web Services (OWS). Create a map application with a WMS browser, a WFS-T editor, and more. Also available as a Download. README on how to get started.
The OpenGeo Suite QGIS plugin is used to configure the components of OpenGeo Suite through QGIS, a free, open source desktop GIS client. If you prefer using a GUI (graphic user interface) to work with geospatial data try out QGIS and our Suite-QGIS plugin!
GeoGit is a Distributed Version Control System (DVCS) specially designed to handle geospatial data. It takes inspiration from the source code versioning system Git, but employs an approach best suited to the nature of the spatial data it manages. It is currently under active development.
About these materials¶
