Developing OGC Compliant Web Applications with GeoExtΒΆ

Welcome to the workshop “Developing OGC Compliant Web Applications with GeoExt”. This workshop is designed to introduce GeoExt as a web mapping frontend to OGC Web Services (OWS).

The workshop has been adapted from the official GeoExt workshop for the Open Source Opportunities in GIS Summer School. This course is coordinated by the GIS and Remote Sensing Centre of the University of Girona in collaboration with the Nottingham Geospatial Institute and Prodevelop.

The instructors of the GeoExt workshop are:

  • Alberto Romeu
    • @alrocar
    • aromeu [at] prodevelop [dot] es
  • Jorge Sanz

This workshop is presented as a set of modules. In each module the reader will perform a set of tasks designed to achieve a specific goal for that module. Each module builds upon lessons learned in previous modules and is designed to iteratively build up the reader’s knowledge base.

The following modules will be covered in this workshop:
