Update: Boudless no longer has a Community Edition of the OpenGeo Suite. It simply offers a download at : http://boundlessgeo.com/solutions/opengeo-suite/download/ According to their twitter account: You can do anything [with the download] you could have previously done with Community Edition. We've collapsed the distinctions. The original Answer ...

I think that's what OpenLayers BoundingBox strategy is good for. A simple strategy that reads new features when the viewport invalidates some bounds. If it's in OpenLayers, it should be available in GeoExt too.

I would use gdal_translate and gdal_merge.py: Translate the images to crop (subset them) using gdal_translate. You could use a bash script to automate. Something along the lines below. for f in *.tif;do gdal_translate -projwin ulx uly lrx lry "$f" "$f".cropped.tif ; done Use gdal_merge.py to 'stack' the images. Here we are not explicitly controlling ...

WFS/GeoServer does not really provide any way to do generalization on the fly based on scale, but there is a special extension that does what you are looking for by doing some pregeneralization. http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/data/featurepregen.html

Smaran - here's how I managed to get this done. As jdeolive points out, this is unsupported, and I cannot vouch for how the heck I got this to work. I haven't done a ton of troubleshooting, so it's not really ready for primetime. I'm making the assumption that you're trying to run the latest versions of various software, like Postgres & PostGIS, etc. ...

What you want is a new tablespace. A tablespace is a physical location Postgres saves your data to. Here's the Postgres manual entry on creating new tablespaces: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/sql-createtablespace.html

The answer is 'yes' it provides full access to all packages for free. More details on the 'costing' page here. Whether it's better to install each application separately is a different question, and depends on your needs.

Please check timeline plugin on GitHub. I am sure it will help you. It contains simple library to create a time related map with Open Layers. It supports cluster strategy (Open Layers.Strategy.Cluster) and time filtering. Currently it supports source data in GeoJSON or GeoRSS format.

I ended not being able to have OpenGeo suite installed. There was a conflict with the libdal packages between OpenGeo suite, and the libgdal packages of postGIS and QGIS.

Technically the only officially supported ubuntu version 10.04, for which packages are tested extensively on. So i am not surprised there are issues on newer versions. That said, that script is only mandatory if you want to use a new feature of the OpenGeo Suite 2.5, which is a client app building utility (to be announced officially soon) If you don't need ...

To completely remove the OpenGeo Suite, use: sudo apt-get --purge remove opengeo-suite on the command line. I don't think Ubuntu 12.04 is officially supported by the OpenGeo Suite. You'd be better off using an older version. Or a VM if all you want to do is test it.

The Community release of Suite you can get for free has all the functionality of the upstream projects it is built from. The Enterprise release of Suite available with an OpenGeo support plan adds a few extra plugins that aren't included with either Community or the upstream projects, but the support is really what is being sold, not the software itself, so ...

Install the Image Mosaic JDBC plugin A GeoServer webpage hints at the root of the problem: GeoServer does not come built-in with support for Postgis raster columns, it must be installed through an extension. Proceed to Image Mosaic JDBC for installation details. This extension includes the support for Postgis raster. I followed the complex setup ...

The raster analog to WFS is WCS, the Web Coverage Service. The analog to GetFeature would be GetCoverage. The principles of WFS and WCS are the same (serving of raw spatial data), but the implementations are slightly different, as one deals with vectors and one deal with rasters. GeoServer has some documentation on WCS here: ...

Re 1: You can use the bbox query parameter. It takes coordinates in map projection (Web Mercator by default). So e.g. ?bbox=150000,670000,180000,880000 Re 2: The Query tool is only available in the composer, not the viewer. In the exported url, change /viewer to /composer to see it.

Some possible solutions: Do you really need the data in a vector format? If the large complex polygons are just for reference then they'll be fine as WMS / images. If you can simplify them then you probably don't need the geometry anyway. You can pass in a generalisation parameter to a map layer through a custom paramter, and use this to simplify ...

Different port numbers are considered as different domains - even if the rest of the URL is the same. So if your main site is running on: http://24.105.210.45:80 You would need a proxy to access: http://24.105.210.45:8080/geoserver/wms?service=wms&version=1.1.1&request=GetCapabilities So the proxy FAQ below applies in your case: ...

Using the OL cluster strategy, you can simplify the representation (for users) but the amount of data transfered will not be lower, because the clusterization is done on the client side. See also, the documentation page. (I don't know about available options on the server side)

first of all i want to advice you to look at this thread which has Comparasion of Javascript Mapping Libraries. At least it will give some information about web mapping libraries. i want to advice as everyone does, openlayers is so good library but it is a bit harder from others because of having good amount of functionality.if you think the way forward ...

The instructions at the GeoExplorer's README.MD work fine. You'd have to set up your PC first though. The guide assumes that you already have Ant and Git running. To comply with it: Install Ant. Easiest way to install And would be to use WinAnt. Just get the installer from their site and run it. Install git. Get the Git for windows installer and run it. ...

According to the tutorial you need to add autoLoadFeatures: true to the gxp_featuremanager section of app.js. Given that your posted code has the line autoLoadFeature: true i would be inclined to say you made a typo. Try changing it to: autoLoadFeatures: true As the tutorial says, make sure you restart the application then refresh the browser. I'd ...

Your ANT_HOME is the path to Apache Ant, it is a build tool, (think GNU Make for Java). Ant builds the projects created by the SDK. If you don't already, you will want to set a JAVA_HOME environmental variable pointing to where you have your Java Development Kit installed. You will also want to append %JAVA_HOME%/bin to your PATH. Download Apache Ant ...

Turns out "Import Data" doesn't do quite what I thought it did. It's intended for pulling in external data, which it intentionally copies. In short, it: Copies the data you import into a GeoServer Store, and Serves that new data from the Store as a Layer. What I should have done - and the proper way of doing this, it seems - is to instead: Add the ...

I would first 'stack' them: gdalbuildvrt -separate -input_file_list my_files.txt my.vrt where the my_files contains a list of the files you want to use, in the specific order. Then crop with gdal_translate: gdal_translate -projwin ulx uly lrx lry my.vrt my.tif

Actually on Linux installations the postgis specific functionality on the dashboard is explicitly disabled since it's not running as a native app. So unless you saw some installation errors it is probably fine. You can verify by logging into the database from the terminal. Try this. psql -U opengeo medford select postgis_version(); If that all works ...

Thanks to a hint by Micha (below) I solved this by creating a new table with the results of the ST_Union query, however this time running the Populate_Geometry_Columns() method afterward to make sure the geometry types and SRID are correct. This is the new, much cleaner SQL: CREATE TABLE opengeo.london_merged_correct AS SELECT ST_Union(the_geom) AS ...

The Answer depends on what you mean by remote server. Ideally, you would have a server connected to the internet (or maybe intranet only, dependent on your need). You would then install the OpenGeo suite on it, and copy your data into the Postgresql database on the Server. You would then configure Geoserver to serve this data as WMS/WFS services, just ...

The WMS object takes 4 parameters - name, baseURL, WMS options. OpenLayers options. As you have in your working code: map = new OpenLayers.Map('map_element', options); // setup tiled layer var tiled = new OpenLayers.Layer.WMS( "ne_10m_railroads", "http://localhost:8080/geoserver/earth/wms", ...
