OWGIS 2

For more info please visit owgis.org!

What is OWGIS?

OWGIS is a Java web application that creates WebGIS sites by automatically writing HTML and JavaScript code.

We built OWGIS because we wanted an easy way to publish scientific maps on the web. OWGIS provides a self-contained WebGIS sites that can be easily customized. OWGIS can publish any type of georeferenced data served by an WMS server like Geoserver or by an ncWMS sever. The later uses an extension of the WMS standard to serve 3D or 4D data stored as NetCDF files.

The default template of OWGIS can be tested here.

Each WebGIS site is configured by two types of files, a Java properties file stored at web/WEB-INF/conf/MapViewConfig.properties and XML files located at web/layers/TestLayers.xml. With these two files you can create new maps with many layers and customize the look of your map.

For a detailed information on the configuration files please read the tutorials section at owgis.org.

Quick Start

Quick start using ant

Quick start using Netbeans

Ant

Step 1. Clone the repository:

git clone https://github.com/olmozavala/OWGIS_V2.git OWGISV2Template

Step 2. Edit buildTemplate.xml to match your paths, mainly the Tomcat folder.

Step 3. Build your war file:

ant -f buildTemplate.xml dist

Step 3. Deploy the project in your servlet container, like Tomcat

cp OWGISV2Template.war /usr/local/tomcat/webapps

Step 4. Test your OWGIS Template at http://localhost:8080/OWGISV2Template/mapviewer

Once OWGIS template is working, you can modify the layers shown in the map as well as the look of the website by following the documentation at owgis.org.

Netbeans

Building a Netbeans project for OWGIS is very easy.

Step 1. Clone the repository:

git clone https://github.com/olmozavala/OWGIS_V2.git OWGISV2Template

Step 3. Create new project in Netbeans

Delete `buildTemplate.xml` file (from OWGISV2Template directory)
File -> New Project (Ctrl-Shift-N)
Java Web -> Web Application with Existing Sources (Next)
Location: point to the root folder "OWGISV2Template" (Next)
Select your server (Tomcat, JBOSS, etc.) (Next)
If not set by default set:
    Web Pages Folder -> OWGISV2Template/web
    Web-INF Folder  -> OWGISV2Template/web/WEB-INF
    Libraries Folder -> OWGISV2Template/libraries 
    Source package folders -> OWGISV2Template/src/java (Finish)

Step 3. Common Netbeans configuration (in Project Properties)

Sources -> Change source to JDK 7 if necessary
Run -> Relative URL -> /mapviewer (Ok)

Step 4. Test your OWGIS Template at http://localhost:8080/OWGISV2Template/mapviewer

Once OWGIS template is working, you can modify the layers shown in the map as well as the look of the website by following the documentation at owgis.org.
