GeoServer: deployment and configuration

GeoServer is an Open Source map engine developed in a JAVA environment and based on the GeoTools library.

GeoServer manages many Web Service specifications (OGC WMS, WFS-T, WCS, SLD, etc.) and is, in addition, a reference application for support for OGC WFS standard.. In addition, it is easy for an experienced user reference application for OGC to support the WFS standard.

GeoServer allows you to quickly set up a Web Service to provision GIS data.

GeoServer supports many output formats for data (PNG, SVG, KML, JPEG, PDF, GeoJSON, etc.). In addition, it is easy for an experienced user to add his own output module designed for vector data.
