MapStore is an Open Source highly modular webgis framework developed by GeoSolutions to create, manage and share securely in a simple and intuitive way maps and mashups created mixing contents served from servers like Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing or from server adehering to OGC standards like WFS, CSWWMS, WMTS and TMS. The new version 2 has been developed by  using modern javascript technologies as an evolution of the old version 1 of MapStore following the investigation and prototyping summarised in this blog post.

MapStore aims to be both a product as well as webgis framework. It is a product in the sense that it can be used with no coding to cover the use case of a standard geoportal, however it is also a framework in the sense that it can be used as starting point to build sophisticated geospatial applications.

Downstream product that uses MapStore 2 as a framework.

Extensive work has been performed on creating a responsive and modern Look&Feel as explained this post as well as in this one.

MapStore does not depend explicitly on any mapping engine but it can work with OpenLayers 3, LeafletJS and Cesium ensuring the greatest flexibility when one wants to use it as a framework.

MapStore has been designed from the beginning to provide users with a coherent and comprehensive experience across different devices, hence it should automatically adapt to different screen size as shown below.

Check the following presentation for an in-depth look at MapStore or play with the online demo at this link (contact us if you want to receive an account that would allow you to create new maps). If you are impatient, here below we have embedded a nice map served by MapStore 2 for you to play with its embedded version.

You can find more information at the links provided here below as well as in our portfolio or in our blog.

It is eventually worth to point out that we provide development and support services for MapStore under our GeoSolutions Enterprise Support Service offer.
