4/6/2013 - Come see us at FOSS4G-NA 2013

Come visit us at FOSS4G-NA 2013 in Minneapolis, MN from May 21-24. GeoMOOSE started in Minnesota and was first presented in very early form at OSG ‘05. As OSG ‘05 was a precursor to the FOSS4G conferences, we feel FOSS4G-NA 2013 is a homecoming for the project. There will be a GeoMOOSE workshop (presented as part of the MN GIS/LIS Consortium’s spring workshops) in the afternoon on May 21st. GeoMOOSE developers will be attending the conference and we plan to grab a table at the code sprint on Friday the 24th. Friday is a free day, so even if you can’t attend the rest of the conference, stop by and see us during the code sprint. Also, be sure to check out the other projects at the sprint and the free presentations.

What is GeoMOOSE?

GeoMOOSE is a Web Client JavaScript Framework for displaying distributed cartographic data. GeoMOOSE has a number of strengths including modularity, configurability, and delivers a number of core functionalities in its packages. GeoMOOSE is also very light weight for servers making it easy to handle a large number of users, with a large number of layers, and a large number of services without stressing a server.

The GeoMOOSE core is written using JavaScript and HTML. It is entirely possible to run GeoMOOSE with nothing more than a basic web server (Nginx, Apache, IIS). But besides the basic client core, GeoMOOSE also comes prepackaged with a number of built in services written in PHP. These services add the ability to perform drill-down identify operations, selection operations, and search data sets. If you have existing scripts that perform similar functions, GeoMOOSE can be tuned to work with those services, no matter which language they were written.

Being an open source project GeoMOOSE is also built upon other open source projects:


GeoMOOSE excels at creating a useful web-based GIS environment for those who need something that works from the first download. The GeoMOOSE demo contains a fully operating web-based parcel application. It can render, investigate, and even edit layers without the need to write a single line of code.
