Camptocamp – Training

Thematic training: spatial data

This session will help you understand and implement a whole infrastructure typical in the establishment of a map website in order to publish your spatial data.

This training aims at giving you the means to publish your data at the end of training while giving you the means to pursue its development after.


  • Understanding the architecture type of geospatial applications
  • Be able to implement the various software components and configure
