Welcome to the Building Web GIS Apps with Java Spring Boot MVC and Leaflet course. We'll be building a Full-stack MVC style Web Application using the Java Spring Tool suite. The purpose of this course and many more to follow, is to learn to create geospatial analytics and convert it into a functional application.

In our use case we will be working with residential water consumption data and  we will be applying  data processing techniques to extract transform and load the data into our spatial database. Once we have processed and cleaned the data, we will use it as a data source for building our Java Spring Boot Web Map Application.

We will be powering our application with a PostgreSQL and PostGIS database. In the Front-End we'll use Thymeleaf, JavaScript, Leaflet and Ajax. On the server side we'll be using Java Spring Boot MVC and combined with use of libraries like Hibernate-Spatial, commons-csv and JPA for our data transformation and conversion operations. The operating system that we will be working on is Windows 10 and Server 2016.

Some skills that you can expect to derive after completing the course are the following:

  • You will learn how to build a Spatial Database using Postgresql and PostGIS.

  • You will learn how to create charts with Chart.js.

  • You will learn to build Web Maps with Leaflet.js.
