Is there any software that can easily create a Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) without using a script?

  • I second that mention of QGIS and the "save as SLD" plugin - it will even allow you to publish it directly to GeoServer without having to "save" to a file first. – 1tylermitchell Dec 19 '12 at 8:25

You can try these:

If you are an ArcGIS Desktop user. Have a look at GeoCat Bridge: http://geocat.net.

If you're looking for webbased solutions, try GXP Styler: http://gxp.opengeo.org.

QGIS now has native support for SLD.

Here are two more options:

  1. You can install the GeoExt Styler extension and use it directly to set the styles.

  2. If you have ArcGIS desktop, and want to convert from your Map Documents/ layer files to sld files without any headaches, you can use Arc2Earth. They even have a free (free as in Beer) community edition, which you can use to export the sld files of layers one at a time. As someone who is far too invested in ArcGIS desktop, I can't overstate how easy it has made my life.

You can use Tilemill. it allows you to export SLD (compatible with mapnik)

Use geoserver CSS module http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/extensions/css/index.html It creates SLD by it's own, there is no need to learn SLD.
