The OSGeo Board is pleased to announce that it has approved the application by the MapFish and GeoServer projects to enter the incubation process. Incubation is a stepping stone to becoming a full fledged OSGeo project.
GeoServer is a server written in Java that allows users to share and edit geospatial data. Designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards. GeoServer is the reference implementation of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Coverage Service (WCS) standards, as well as a high performance certified compliant Web Map Service (WMS). GeoServer makes extensive use of the GeoTools Java library.
