Are you new to GeoSpatial? This GeoTools session is back by popular demand with Java 8 examples. Offering a visual introduction for Java developers we will exploring how you can integrate GIS services into your next project.

For those new to the GeoSpatial scene we provide an introduction to spatial concepts and how to avoid common pitfalls.

The workshop offers a steady series of workbooks introducing:

  • Feature creation
  • Geometry, Coordinate Reference Systems and Re-projection
  • Spatial Queries
  • Handling large format rasters
  • Working with Style
  • Raster Operations

Covering both the concepts and the science of map making the workbooks serve as an excellent reference, but the focus is always on you and the code you need to get the job done.
