GeoServer Community

GeoServer Community modules provide an area for ideas and experimentation:

  • WCS and WPS output formats based on gdal_translate to provide a greater range of output formats

  • Embedded GeoFence server, REST API and GUI is the result of a productive collaboration between GeoSolutions and Boundless offering greater rule-based control of GeoServer security

  • MongoDB DataStore enabling GeoServer to publish from this popular JSON based document database (no zip packaging, needs volunteer)

Community modules should be considered a work-in-progress and are subject to quality assurance, documentation IP checks and a maintainer before being considered ready for release.
