Is it possible to give offset to symbol of point feature using sld in openlayers or geoserver?

share|improve this question

You can use the offset function on point, line and polygon features in GeoServer to style your WMS. Below is an example of how to use the offset function with a point feature in SLD:

<ogc:Function name="offset">
      <CssParameter name="fill">#FF0000</CssParameter>
      <CssParameter name="stroke">#000000</CssParameter>
      <CssParameter name="stroke-width">1</CssParameter>

You can see more on GeoServer and Geometry transformations in SLD.
