Camptocamp – Training

MapFish GeoPortal (advanced)

The goal of the MapFish Geoportal is to gather the maximum features in a consistent and efficient application to facilitate the creation and the maintenance of map applications. It offers the possibility of combining layers and  thematic layers groups, of searching the layers by spatial and attribute queries, of coupling the map with external APIs such as those offered by Google.

This training program you will be autonomous in creating map applications and integrating your own data in the tool. The MapFish GeoPortal  is entirely Open Source (BSD license).
