Welcome to Geospatial Brainstorming, the official blog of Miller Mountain LLC

As a GIS consultant, I get asked a lot of questions. I am starting this blog as a way to provide answers to questions that I commonly get asked, as well as to develop a community to whom I can ask questions that I have.

I work mostly with developing web-based GIS interfaces using open source technologies and so I suspect that most of my posts will be related to those topics. I am open to other topics, however.  Please feel free to suggest a topic by emailing me at millermountainmex@gmail.com

New Course: Server-side web GIS applications with Leaflet and PostGIS

Server-side web GIS applications allow you to build secure, web-based portals to your GIS data that allow display, analysis, and editing of GIS data from anywhere there is an internet connection.  This is demonstrated with open-source software so that the concepts are accessible to everyone without cost. If you prefer to use commercial software I …

Working with PostGIS data from within Leaflet.js (or any other client side mapping API)

This 3-part mini-course is my attempt to explain the basic concepts of working with PostGIS data from within the Leaflet.js mapping API.  Technically this is not Leaflet programming. In this scenario Leaflet.js simply becomes the canvas on which your geospatial data is displayed on a web map.  All of the interaction with the geospatial data …

Editing GIS data on the web: When do you need server-side code

Most GIS professional’s initial foray into web-mapping involves building a client side application using a JavaScript API such as Leaflet, OpenLayers, or Google Maps. They learn to set the initial location and scale, place a point or two on the maps, and maybe even load their own GIS data from a GeoJSON file. This is …
