Oleksandr Kychun

Oleksandr gives a Lightning talk about GIS integration: Storing and displaying geospatial data using OpenGeo Suite.

I would tell about:
- GIS itself;
- open source software called OpenGeo Suite;
- Geo spatial data representation in Geoserver (shapefiles and postgresql databases with postgis extension);
- Scalable data import using rest api.
Finally i would present the way to serve stored data using Open Layers.
This topic might be useful for Ruby Devs, GIS enthusiasts that are looking for free and powerful tools and other Backend devs.
