We provide layers via shapefiles and/or PostGIS PostGreSQL database in
geoserver-2.x.x with GCS Geometry.
geoserver-2.x.x itself uses this shapefiles to render maps.
The shapefiles are located on the server machine where
geoserver-2.x.x is installed.
I was just thinking to allow user to download specific shapefile(s) of specific layer(s).
I want user to download the shapefile via the website developed using
OpenLayers 3 and
As per this link:
Case 1: Layer which is from PostGIS
Case 2: Layer from shapefile (.shp) (located somewhere in D:\shape\Layer.shp on server)
In both above cases will same code work for allowing user to download shapefiles?
If the files may too large or the data table used in
PostGISis too wide, still it will allow user to download the shapefile?
For case 2 will it create a shapefile by itself?
Because my layers are mixing of above two cases. Would I have same logic?
I want to understand how it works. Because I want to give bulk download also for group layers.
Is this possible? I also want to give the same feature in one of my project in world wind.
Any help is invited.
