SEEGrid Roadshow Set Up Requirements

Minimum requirements

Details of the requirements for the state surveys on day 2 of the Roadshow to enable and leave running a publicly accessible WFS.

System Requirements:

Geoserver deployment preparation

If you want to get started on installing Geoserver before day 2 of the roadshow here's how:

  1. Checkout geoserver from the Geoserver repository (under a branch)
  2. Follow install instructions at http://geoserver.sourceforge.net/documentation/1.2.0-rc2/
    • to use the embeddy jetty server use ant prepareEmbedded first (port number config is in documents/jetty.xml)
  3. using ant you can run the build with ant go and/or generate a WAR file to install the Geoserver directories
  4. Read the notes at GeometrylessJDBCDataStore if you wish to use non-spatial tables
  5. Read the notes on schemamapping - including the release notes for the geoserver build at https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/twiki/bin/view/Infosrvices/MCAProjectOutputs#Geoserver_configuration

  • Access from the TCP/IP port running Tomcat or Jetty to the outside world (or at least cgsrv3.arrc.csiro.au)


* if you can only serve out (be visible from the internet) on port 80 you will need root permission to run tomcat or Jetty on this port and have nothing else on the machine using this port.
