I am trying to make an online map with GeoServer.

I am making the map now in HTML with the OpenLayers library. I want to use a different base map because the default map from OpenLayers is more than I need.

I only want to see the countries, for example, not the roads and things like that.

Is this possible? And if so, how is this possible then?

  • Probably best done using a vector (or vector tile) layer. There's a very basic one in the OpenLayers examples openlayers.org/en/v4.6.5/examples/… The country outlines are very approximate but you could improve the appearance by editing the styles. For better quality you could use vector tiles, for example cloud.maptiler.com/tiles/v3/#0/0/0 (you will need to sign up for a free API key). By setting styles (MapTiler has an editor) you can choose which features you want to show and how they are shown. – Mike Oct 23 '18 at 13:58
