    GeoServer is an open source software server that allows users to share and edit geospatial data on the web. Designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards. This workshop will teach you how to load, publish, and share geospatial data with GeoServer. Topics include navigating the GeoServer user interface, loading and publishing data, OGC web services, map creation and styling, and Google Earth integration. No prior experience with GeoServer is necessary, but familiarity with fundamental GIS concepts and/or web mapping is suggested.
