GeoServer is a Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE)-based software server in compliance with OpenGIS specifications. It allows you to publish, update, delete, and insert geospatial data. Using GeoServer, you can flexibly create maps and share spatial information. GeoServer conforms to both the Web Map Service (WMS) standard and the Web Feature Service (WFS) standard set forth by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). It supports data sources including PostgreSQL, Shapefile, ArcSDE, Oracle, VPF, MySQL, and MapInfo, and projections in hundreds of formats. GeoServer can produce maps in various output formats, such as JPEG, GIF, PNG, SVG, and KML. GeoServer can run on any Java-based or Servlet-based container. It is integrated with OpenLayers, a mapping library that allows you to use the asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) request to create maps. In addition, more features are provided for you to explore.
