I'm trying to calculate isotherms following the istructions showed in the post on OSGeo blog (

I'm using GeoServer 2.2.3 on a Windows 7 machine (8 Gbyte RAM, biprocessor)

I've a shapefile with points and temperature and I'm trying to use the Meteo-1.sld

Using the layer in preview


it works fine but when I try to use le Meteo-1.sld


the map is white. It seems that there are no errors in the log.

When I try to use the Barnes Surface WPS directy (gs.BarnesSurface), I obtain a black tiff ....

At the following link there are:

  • --> the shapefile I'm using
  • Meteo-1.sld --> the sld I'm using
  • geoserver.log --> geoserver log

Could someone tell me which configurations I've to use in the sld for my data? Or give me a sample data and a sld that works?

Thank you in advance!!

I worked a little bit on this issue and now I'm able to obtain something that works (still not a final work but it's fine ....).

At the following link there are:

TemperatureBand.sld --> SLD to generate a temperature band surface
Isotherm.sld --> SLD ti generate isotherm from the temperature band surface
TemeperatureBand-Isothem --> SLD "all in one"

It seems better: try to creare a Group Layer using the point, the surface and the isothems and it looks better now.

Sorry for using an answer for a question, but i still don't have gis.stackexchange commenting privs.

Since i'm not at a computer, can you confirm that the shapefile actually has an attribute "Temperatur" (with the e....). You can confirm this by looking at the definition of CesareWorkspace:CentralineTemperature-01-01-2001 in the Geoserver/admin layers section.
