Free Webinar – First Steps with GeoNode 4.0

<<Recording Available on our YouTube Channel!>> Dear Reader, The definition of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) as the collection of technologies, policies and institutional arrangements that facilitate the availability of and access to spatial data has changed little during the years.

Free Webinar – A DevOps perspective on GeoServer: Deployment planning guidelines

Dear Reader, The most important part of the work to be performed when setting up a geospatial platform based on GeoServer is to design and plan properly the deployment. As obvious as it may sound, we found that often customers we interact with, tend to lean towards overcomplicated set ups as they they focus on the technologies themselves rather than on the purpose of the platform that they want to deploy. The use cases and the target scenario to address shall drive the technological choice the resources to acquire and the procedures to put in place for managing data publication as well as the...
