QGIS Bridge Status Report
2021-10-01, 08:30–09:00, Córdoba

Bridge is a plugin for QGIS, enabling you to publish (meta)data to the OSGeo server stack (GeoServer, GeoNetwork, Mapserver, PostGIS). We'll report about our plans and the adoption of Bridge and its internal modules by other projects.

Bridge for QGIS was first released in Bucharest and downloaded more than 4000 times since then. It is a Python plugin to publish maps from QGIS to GeoServer, MapServer, or GeoNetwork. The underlying module style2style, which generates SLD and Mapbox Style from QGIS style, has been adopted by a number of other projects. In this presentation we'll share some experiences while working on these topics. We'll look ahead on what's coming and would love to hear about your challenges concerning style, data and metadata conversions between products.
