The Styled Layer Descriptor provides is an XML based standard for Web Map Services (WMS) to symbolize geographic features. This session will explore how SLD Rules, Filters, and Booleans can be exploited to symbolize geographic features according to attribute data.
As a demonstration of this approach, we will explore how maritime Digital Nautical Charts in the Vector Product Format (VPF) can be properly rendered and displayed using SLD in lieu of the VPF native rendering rules - GeoSym.
The result of this session will be a better understanding of the power of SLD along with the ability to better use the vast amounts of data available to you via WMS.
