OpenGeo Suite 4.7.1 is Now Available

We’ve just released OpenGeo Suite 4.7.1, with a focus on bug fixes and routine stabilization. It’s now available for download here or via your respective repos. While it may be a minor release, it’s yet again another step in our constant development and improvement of Suite, plus it helps us clear the decks for what’s next. We can’t wait to get started on the upcoming releases – in addition to upgrading core components of Suite, we’re working on great things like ElasticSearch and our supported formats. So much to come as we enter 2016!

The Power of Maps” from November 15th through the 21st.  You read more about the history and purpose of Geography Awareness Week, as well as browse through an archive of resources from years past in the National Geographic Society Archive.

Scaling Your GIS with Pivotal Greenplum

Let’s start this post with some basics: OpenGeo Suite ships with PostGIS.  PostGIS is a spatial database extender for the PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL.  PostGIS includes support for GiST-based R-Tree spatial indexes and functions for spatial data analysis.  Like the rest of OpenGeo Suite, PostGIS is open source software released under the GNU General Public License and implements the OGC Simple Features for SQL Specification.  Including PostGIS with OpenGeo Suite gives users easy access to a relational database from which to store and query your data for use in QGIS or GeoServer.
