Intranet GIS using JEE platform and OpenStreetMap

I welcome!

The question is - if possible, on the basis of OSM write offline GIS on JEE platform? Visualize some of the objects over the map, whose coordinates are specified in the database.
What tools are needed for this and where to start?

I would be grateful for the information.

I assume that Java Enterprise Edition is different to Java for desktop PC?

So far I have never seeh any software bases on JEE that uses OSM data. But you can go to and do a fulltext search for “Java” … although I don’t know whether this helps about JEE.

Any GIS should be able to visualize OSM data from a PostGIS schema created with Osm2pgsql or from Shapefiles, see GIS software.

You may hava a look at GeoServer: “Java (J2EE) servlet-based, can run in any servlet container”, see also GeoServer and OpenStreetMap. For more open source GIS software and libraries (some in Java) visit OSGeo.

Thank you all for the info!

stefan75, why? Here is an example, written just on the basis of GeoServer and OpenLayers.
Here’s an example based on Vaadin OpenLayers Wrapper
Another example -

My question is - how to use WMS in GeoServer? I download the OpenStreetMap data and import it to GeoServer and now i want to use this data as a WMS layer. Is it possible? I would be very grateful for the information!


Of course it is possible and you can see one example on home page of Geoserver
What you see is an OpenLayers application but Geoserver can generate the same maps into WMS too. I am sure that you will find a lot of reading by doing a search with Geoserver and OpenStreetMap.
However, OpenStreetMap data are just geospatial data like all the other geospatial data. OSM just happens to have a bit peculiar native format. I would start with a simple way by downloading some OSM shapefiles from Cloudmade or Geofabrik. Use them for making some shapefile data stores for Geoserver and start playing with styles. The SLD cookbook is a good introduction to SLD styles. But if you want to do something really interesting with OSM data and not just dull WMS or even more dull tiles, start to play with WFS.

I welcome you, JRA!

Whew! How much information! Thank you very much!
We had some problems with the projection, this will be dedicated to a single topic.


BTW what about this candidates? Both OpenSource of course

I welcome you, !i! ! : -)

…Whew! Thank you very much for the info!
