Ghent, Belgium and Denver, US – September 12, 2011 – Geosparc, the company professionally supporting the open source GIS development software Geomajas, today unveiled Geomajas 1.9, the new version of its web and cloud based GIS software framework. At the same time the company announces the availability of no less than 17 plug-ins including plug-ins for: Caching, OpenStreetMap Layer, WMS Layer, Hibernate Layer, Advanced Printing and many more.
Geomajas is fast becoming the software tool of choice of many developers from governments and different industries to build scalable, powerful and secure web and cloud based GIS applications. The main reasons governments and industries select Geomajas are time saving (build apps in days instead of months), ease of deployment via a simple browser, very fast build up of maps (even when multiple users are working on it), strong security features, strong back-office integration features and the possibility to integrate advanced business logic. All that in just one software framework.
Geosparc will demonstrate Geomajas 1.9 and numerous GIS applications built with Geomajas at Foss4G, the global conference focused on Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (12-16 September, Denver – US). Key members of its development team will present a workshop and no less than 3 technology sessions at the conference.
Workshop: Introduction to Geomajas
As the field of web GIS software gets saturated, it becomes increasingly difficult to select the right technology to solve your needs. This workshop will show how to set up an elegantly designed, user friendly yet powerful and secure web GIS application capable of working with thousands of vector objects on the map.
Technology session 1: Mobile GIS through Geomajas
With the increasing popularity of tablets and smartphones we have entered a new world where mobile devices reign supreme. The current generation of web GIS products have had to overcome a wide variety of browsers to support, and so too must the next generation of GIS solutions support an equally wide variety of mobile platforms. By leveraging the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), Geomajas has entered the mobile world successfully.
Technology session 2: Geomajas, a GIS framework for the web
Geomajas, the GIS framework for the web, focuses’ on efficient data delivery, security and performance. The mantra is "integrate, transform and secure GIS data". It is cloud-ready and modular, has advanced caching and security. The framework can talk to many types of data sources and present them in several ways using our "faces".
Technology session 3: Securing GIS data
This session will focus on the implementation and architecture of security on GIS data as implemented in Geomajas. It also includes an explanation of how credential leakage is prevented and how this can be integrated with industry standard solutions.
