Short Course 515: Setting up a GeoSciML data service to publish your geological map data
(Registration opens in mid-June. We will post the registration link as soon as it becomes available).
Saturday, 8 October 2011, 08:00 - 17:00
Cost: $50; includes continental breakfast and lunch.
Organizers: Arizona Geological Survey (OneGeology participant and data provider),, AGI, and YES Network
This course is aimed at graduate students and early-career faculty who are doing geological mapping projects and are interested in online data publication. GeoSciML is a standards-based data format that provides a framework for application-neutral encoding of geoscience thematic data and related spatial data. Using GeoSciML, you will learn how to set up a GeoSciML data service so that you can publish your geological mapping data in a vendor-neutral format that will allow for data exchange and interoperability. We will implement a basic OGC Web Feature Service using GeoSciML with an example dataset and a software stack using free, open-source software (PostGIS, Geoserver). Participants are required to bring their own laptops that are equipped with a wireless connection.
