Open Web Services and Web Map Applications Summer School 2013

From 8th to 12th of July 2013 will take place the 4rd Summer School dedicated to Open Source Opportunities in GIS in Girona, organized by SIGTE of the University of Girona with the contribution of OpenGeo, industry leader in geospatial technology based on free software, and the Geospatial Institute of the University of Nottingham, experts in Open Web Services.

The Open Source Opportunities in GIS Summer School is an initiative aimed to meet the GIS professional demands related to free and open solutions, and we are working on this vision from the start. The Summer School 2013 will be focused on the development and creation of Open Web Services and Web Applications, especially on the publication of data on the web. With this goal, the programme will cover topics related to the management and query of spatial databases, creation of geospatial web services and development of internet viewers for publishing geospatial data. During this course you will learn some basic and fundamental steps in the use of tools such as PostgreSQL and PostGIS, GeoServer, OpenLayers and GeoExt. 

If you are interested in application development and creation of web map services using the most widely used free and open source market products, then this is your opportunity. 

And beyond the strict quality and technical level of the programme, there is the charm of the historic city of Girona and the magnificent Old Town and its wide range of cultural, musical and culinary offer; and the hospitality that has always distinguished the organization team, recognized in each of the initiatives that we undertake.
