MapServer is an OSGeo project for publishing spatial data and interactive mapping applications to the web [1]. 2021 will see the 8.0 release of MapServer [2]. An overview of the performance boosts, security updates, code quality improvements, and new features such as an initial OGC API implementation, and PROJ 6+ support.

An update will be given on the MapServer ecosystem - including new sites from the MapServer gallery, related projects such as MapCache [3], and the various distribution channels.

Finally we'll look at how to become a part of the MapServer community and help with the continued success of the project.




The MapServer PSC will be working towards providing the MapServer user base with an annual update on project news and developments.
