I am trying to figure out whether or not there are any directories within GeoServer latest which allow me to offer image files over the internet. I am using windows server 2012. I have internet access to the endpoints (set up through a reverse proxy) which allow users to see the map services e.g servername/arcgis/services/directory/servicename/MapServer/ but as far as I know these are virtual directories and do not allow me to save images within them.

I am looking to simply find an open directory without having to set up another reverse proxy.

  • GeoServer is publishing images(coverages) also as WCS service and they can be downloaded with GetCoverage request.

  • To prevent your question being too broad please only ask about one product per question. If you need to ask about two then I recommend always asking about the most likely to meet your requirement first. If you then need to ask about the other, simply ask a separate question.
