Developer’s Corner: Achieving Extreme GeoServer Scalability with the new Marlin vector rasterizer

As you probably know, GeoServer is a Java based software, so its performance is heavily dependent on what the Java Virtual Machine and the Java standard library can offer. Over the years the GeoServer developers have been pushing the boundaries of what can be done by replacing portions of the Java standard libraries by adopting faster replacements, for example, the turbo jpeg encoder, the native PNG encoder available in ImageIO native extensions, or the recent adoption of the pure java, high performance PNGJ library. One of the Achilles' heel that so far we failed to replace is the anti-aliased rasterizer contained in the...


Developer’s Corner: Bridging CSS and SLD unit of measure treatment in GeoServer

Hi,in this blog we are introducing some work with did to bridge the unit of measure treatment in SLD and CSS. The beginning of the blog is a bit technical, so if you want to just get the news, skip towards the map screenshots.Unit of measure treatment in CSS is rather straightforward, every size is in pixel, unless otherwise specified by appending a unit of measure to it. In GeoServer geospatial CSS design there are three unit of measure, meter (m), feet (ft) and pixels (px), for example, say we want to have a circular mark, whose size is 2...
