Maps are increasingly being made available to the general public via Web GIS. This means that maps are used more intensively, with possible loss of interactivity due to slow response. By using tiling and caching you can achieve enormous speed gains and the performance continues to meet expectations even with more intensive use. is a successful example of a tiling and caching solution. GeoWebCache is a widely used OpenSource solution to implement tiling and caching.


In this course you will actively work with GeoWebCache. The target groups for this course are: Application administrators. Some prior knowledge of XML and GIS is not necessary, but it is useful. It is also useful if you have some experience with WFS and WMS setup. In this course we will first discuss tiling and caching. Then we look at the Link with ArcGis. Then there will be a small workshop GeoWebCaching. In which we put into practice what we have learned.

Learning objectives of this course:

  • In this training you will learn to apply a tiling and caching solution in your own environment based on GeoWebCache.
