2013 OpenLayers 2 WorkshopΒΆ

Welcome to the OpenLayers Workshop. This workshop is designed to give you a comprehensive overview of OpenLayers as a web mapping solution. The exercises assume that you have set up a local GeoServer with the workshop data as described in the Workshop Setup page.

The workshop has been adapted from the official Open Geo OpenLayers 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 OpenLayers workshop are:

  • Alberto Romeu
    • @alrocar
