Open Source is our way of both giving back to the developer community, as well as making projects who’s impact is amplified across all of the software that include them.

Web Map Services (WMS) on Android

WMS is used to serve map tiles over HTTP by back end frameworks like GeoServer. Some set of geo-referenced data, typically shape files or data stored in a PostGIS database, are returned as raster map tiles. In the past, this data has been consumed by web applications using a client library such as Leaflet or OpenLayers. With Google’s v2 mapping API for android, it is now relatively straightforward to build Android apps that combine WMS tiles with Google’s base maps and other data such as vector shapes and map markers.
