QWC2 viewer for QGIS server with micro service architecture
QWC2 is a responsive web mapping client optimized for publishing maps with QGIS Server. A modular architecute based on micro services (running as Docker containers or WSGI modules) allows scaling from basic setups up to highly customized service environments.
Vector tile benchmark
Vector tiles are an established format to publish highly interactive maps for use on mobile devices and desktop browsers. A benchmark compares MVT tile generation and tile serving performance of specialized servers like t-rex and proven map servers like UMN Mapserver.
WebAssembly - a new technology and its potential for geospatial application
WebAssembly is a binary runtime format designed for efficiency, speed and safety. Version 1.0, standardized in a W3C Working Group, is now supported by all major browsers. It opens up a whole new way to create performant web applications and gives new possibilities to share (geospatial!) libraries between desktop and web applications.
