Unavoidable part of any GIS application

What do you like best?
Free and open source tool that implements OGC standards and offers numerous functionalities as well as expensive commercial software.

Be prepared to face bugs and dive into the code to fix them.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
WMS and WMTS are commonly used services in GIS. Simple way to visualize any spatial data is to show it on map.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Sometimes to complete your aim you need to modify and develope some functionalities. That is the price of using free software.

I Highly recommend GeoServer

  • October 26, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It is the best open source map server software currently available, easy to learn and achieve fast results.
Community plugins add a lot of functionality, on top of a robust main software.
What do you dislike?
The only disadvantage I suffered from is the styling options which are only code based and not friendly for non-coders.
The css styling plugin does make the style process somewhat easier.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Serving GeoSpatial data
Recommendations to others considering the product:
As stated above, this is the best open source software for serving either vector or raster data.
It is very easy to set up on windows and linux and you can get to serving your data within minutes of installing it.

    Computer Software

Modern GIS and Mapping delivered by a monumental community effort

  • October 23, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Scalability and Affordability. While the technology itself is great and on par with Enterprise Mapping Servers, the most impressive achievement which the others cannot achieve are the scalability and affordability factors that an open source solution such as Geoserver can deliver.
What do you dislike?
The UI. While any UI is good for shell savvy users, it will still be good to have a more user friendly and modern looking UI. This will attract more high level developers and enterprise system architects and will convince them that this is a strong software in terms of capabilities. Also, the online resources and documentation for this software, its plugins and extensions, and the commonly used software pairings could be a bit more easily accessible in structured unified space. For now, setting things up and using the different capabilities sometimes requires visits to many sites and locations to achieve this goal
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Geoserver is capable of delivering me a strong technology for WMS and general GIS management through web application development.
