With a full year of hard work the GeoMoose team is proud to announce the official 3.0.0 release!
This is the first major rewrite of GeoMoose in nearly 10 years. This newest version offers a great upgrade over the the 2.X line in GeoMoose:
  1. Modern Javascript frameworks. GM3 is based on React, OpenLayers 4, JSTS, Babel, and Webpack. This makes GeoMoose development and deployment platform independent and easy to extends.
    Not a fan of React and ES6? No fear! GeoMoose’s examples are written in traditional Javascript.
  2. We’re exercising even more standards. GM3 does not use PHP but still can perform identify, select, and buffer operations! It does this by using JSTS to do client-side geometry manipulation and the querying capabilities of WFS and FeatureServices.
    That also means no more MapServer templates! Templates can now be defined right in the mapbook using the Mark.up template engine.
  3. There are so many other great features! Try the Demo and read the Quickstarts!. The full 3.0.0 documentation can be found here!
Finally, a huge thank you to the MN.IT with the Minnesota DOT. They provided a lot of technical assistance, review, and funding for this release!
