Building a cartographic web application with pg_tileserv and pg_featureserv
There are some new GIS kids on the block : pg_tileserv and pg_featureserv are GO components allowing you to serve GIS data to build cartographic web applications.
Pg_tileserv let you take any data stored in PostGIS, and easily stream vector tiles to the web.
Pg_featureserv also takes your data from PostGIS. It implements the latest OGC API for Features ( OGC APIF ) standards and make it simple to provide a interoperable API for your front-end application.
These components take full advantage of the underlying PostgreSQL/PostGIS database to provide efficient features with a very simple mechanism.
Easy to set-up, easy to use and powerful, they are now part of the de-facto stack for GIS web developers.
In this workshop, we build a full cartographic application from scratch, putting pg_tileserv and pg_featureserv into action. Our front-end GUI will be based on OpenLayers and we will see how to code a web cartographic app step by step :
- data integration into PostGIS
- Setting up pg_tileserv
- A web cartographic app with OpenLayers
- Advanced usage of pg_tileserv
- Enriching the application with OpenLayers
- Leveraging pg_featureserv
- Enjoy the result !
