Fortunately for you (and all of us!), there are plenty of available (and mature!) options in the FOSS4G world! Following your technology preferences here's some examples: Python Mapfish GeoDjango PHP PMapper pure Javascript OpenLayers LeafLet OpenLayers + ExtJS OpenLayers + Jquery Mapquery, jeobrowser For a more complete reference please visit ...

I agree some of the thoughts already suggested. However to be very clear: do NOT teach the tool, teach the concepts. Yes, it's great that folks know how to use ESRI products (if that is what you are teaching) but give those same people another GIS, and they will struggle--they only know how to use the tool, not think through the process and understand what ...

Do NOT show someone something by taking the mouse away and saying, "Just like that". I often teach with projectors and have students follow and then practice on their own. Allow lots of practice time (if you can...), a rushed course is a crashed course. Teach slowly so that they can take the skills with them when they leave. Not just leaving thinking, "oh, ...

I would also add to that comment, but suggest that keywords and concepts will have a longer lifetime than keystrokes and menu selections (ie buffer, clip, intersect, symmetrical difference and their synonyms). If using a GIS with a good help file, get students to focus on how to find the documentation within the software or online. The keywords/concepts ...

If you are interested in Open Source projects, you'll find the answers to this question helpful: What are the FOSS equivalents to these ArcGIS products? There are quite a lot of different options how to build an OS web mapping stack. Without knowing your use case it's a little difficult to suggest one over the other.

Whenever I teach a GIS application I find the class is nearly always very computer literate, and could probably work the software by trial and error with enough incentive. Particularly since most GUIs are designed to a very similar layout. So try not to go through each piece of functionality saying "this is the file menu, this is where you find the open ...

It's also important that you know the level of knowledge about GIS in the group you are going to teach. We did a seminar for a group of students a few years back under the assumption that it was a group that had no knowledge about GIS, but after short while into the presentation one of the students spoke up "We have been studying GIS for a full year, we ...

I think I would just ask any Geomedia related questions you have and let it expand that way. I'm sure once there are some questions on the subject there will be more traffic. Remember the site is still in beta and just starting out. Also feel free to add Geomedia info to existing questions if you are able; eg where a question states "how do I do xxxx" then ...

I use GeoServer and connect to an Oracle Database (plugin required for geoserver) this happens to be old Geomedia Datastore that was reprojected into a better coordinate system. Then use Openlayers to be the map interface of that data (data is pulled from Geoserver by WMS (Web Mapping Service) Good documentation for this is ...

On the teaching side, I always try to remember that the students are there to learn and not to admire how talented the teacher is! So under-emphasize your qualifications, don't show off, and try to engage the students and draw out their existing knowledge. Find out what they would like to learn, and don't force topics on them just because you like them. If ...

I would recommend checking out the OpenGeo Suite.

I take it you're trying to reproject the data? According to the documentation: srsName= where is the code for the projection (such as EPSG:4326). For POST requests, you can add the same code to the Query element. So you might want to putting it under the Query element.

If a Java solution is an option, have a look at Geomajas. This is a framework for integrating GIS data which gives you a uniform way to handle and display GIS data. Geomajas excels especially in the integration aspects giving powerful end-to-end security, good performance etc. For the client side development it helps by allowing you to work in Java only ...

In FME, this is as simple as connecting your data to an ArcStroker transformer. From the help page: Converts arc features into lines replacing the feature geometry with a series of edges interpolated along the arc boundary. Ellipse features are converted into polygons by interpolating edges along the elliptical boundary. If the input geometry ...

GeoMedia's meta data is stored in GDOSYS. Updating this manually is not a trivial task. Forunately, there is the Database Utilities application (Start->Programs->GeoMedia Professional->Utilities->Database Utilities) just for these kinds of situations.

You can open .mdb file with QGIS 1.8.0, but not all type of Geomedia feature class are supported. Add vector layer -> Browse -> select from type file "ESRI Personal Geodatabase [OGR] .mdb .MDB"

You need to check what geometry types the WFS server supports. Do a GetCapabilities request and check //ogc:GeometryOperands, which provides a list of supported geometry types. Update: as well, make sure your WFS GetFeature request has proper referencing to namespaces, and of geometry types. ...

Well, its not entirely an anwser. However my problem is solved. As I managed to export .shp from GeoMedia at the office. I had to install SQL SERVER EXPRESS, hook up .mdf to the server and connect from GeoMedia to SQL SERVER in order to read database. Still in question, if it is feasible to make use of .mdf database made in GeoMedia in other GIS soft, which ...

http://jeffhobbs.net/ has good links and content. used it Geomedia once found it buggy, but now there is better open source GIS software so makes sense to use that instead.
