Developing a Python script running in web server to show raster properties

INTRODUCTION Geospatial raster files are usually rich in spatial information. Such include the bit depth, its spatial extent, maximum, minimum, mean and standard deviation of all values assigned to its cells, the spatial extent it covers and its size in terms of the number of rows and columns. It is always important to explore this

Creating workspace A workspace is a container that holds similar layers together. For instance, if one wants to create a University web map, then all the spatial data such as buildings and footpaths

Introduction to GeoServer

GeoServer is an open-source server written in Java that allows users to share, process and edit geospatial data. Designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards. GeoServer has evolved to become an easy method of connecting existing information to virtual globes such as Google Earth and NASA World
