GeoServer The average database has always been ready to store geographic information: Just stick the latitude in one column and the longitude in another. That works fine until you want do anything beyond just fetching those values. GeoServer is a database that’s tuned for geographic data, so you can let GeoServer check the validity of the data, search it, and then deliver answers in a format that the mapping layer can readily understand. Written in Java and covered by the GPL 2.0.
