We are pleased to announce the first major release of GeoREST, a new Open
Source framework for publishing and interacting with geospatial data as web
resources.  GeoREST leverages, among other Open Source libraries, both
MapGuide and FDO as data sources.

With GeoREST 1.0 you can enable search engines to crawl your geospatial
data, dynamically publish to KML, GeoRSS or any other text based format, use
web forms to search and update your data, and more. All of this
functionality is available entirely through configuration... no programming

Please visit the GeoREST project website for more information on GeoREST and
the benefits it can bring to your geospatial publishing strategy.


For a quick look, here are two sites that have been using GeoREST in a
production environment for over nine months, with great improvements in the
accessibility of their data:

And an example of using OpenLayers to edit a GeoREST vector layer overlaid
on a MapGuide image service:

ml <http://www.sl-king.com/georestsamples/example1/rview.html>

GeoREST is an independent Open Source project licensed under LGPL, though
our hope is that it will be integrated with the MapGuide project in the
future. It is available for installation on the Windows platform using
either the GeoREST built-in webserver or IIS.

We would love to hear what you think about GeoREST. Please join the
project's mailing list today and help us shape its future.

P.S. Any help porting this project to run on Linux would be greatly
