Ghent, Belgium – November 23, 2010 – Geosparc, the company professionally supporting the open source GIS web application framework Geomajas, today announced that Geomajas has achieved a new status within the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo, www.osgeo.org) as a fully graduated project.
Geomajas is a Java based GIS end-to-end GIS solution. By leveraging the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), Hibernate, GeoTools and Spring, Geomajas offers an enterprise environment for building web GIS applications. This way Geomajas can be used to power a company’s or government spatial data infrastructure.
The software enables developers to build end-to-end GIS solutions integrating the spatial data on the back-end (server-side) whereas the embedded web-mapping technology allows the client-side (via a simple web browser) to deploy interactive and user-friendly GIS applications. All this can be done without having to give up the integrity of the software logic, instead providing powerful possibilities to update and maintain GIS data in the thin-client environment.
Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community operation, a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license verification and general good project operation. Graduating incubation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
Geomajas can be downloaded for free via www.geomajas.org. Also on the website a technology demonstration can be found showing how Geomajas becomes a full desktop application inside your browser.
