I have multiple shapefile layers that I intend to use to create a WMS basemap with GeoServer.
What is the best approach for this?
I would first generate raster image from my shapefile layers, then I would generate raster basemap for multiple zoom levels: https://docs.qgis.org/2.8/en/docs/user_manual/processing_algs/gdalogr/gdal_miscellaneous/overviews.html
After that, I would load basemap to postgis database and serve it with geoserver.
Is this a good approach?
