Building Web GIS Apps with C# ASP.NET CORE MVC and Leaflet

Learn to Build Web GIS Applications with C# and ASP.NET CORE

Welcome to the Building Web GIS Apps with C# ASP.NET CORE MVC and Leaflet course. We’ll be building a Full-stack MVC style Web Application using the .NET Core Framework. The purpose of this course and many more to follow, is to learn to create geospatial analytics and convert it into a functional application.

Welcome to the Building Web GIS Apps with C# ASP.NET CORE MVC and Leaflet course. We’ll be building a Full-stack MVC style Web Application using the .NET Core Framework. The purpose of this course and many more to follow, is to learn to create geospatial analytics and convert it into a functional application.

 

In our use case we will be working with suburban water consumption data and we will be applying data processing techniques to extract transform and load the data into our spatial database. Once we have processed and cleaned the data, we will use it as a data source for building our .NET Core Web Map Application.

 

We will be powering our application with a PostgreSQL and PostGIS database. In the Front-End we’ll use Bootstrap, JavaScript, Leaflet and Ajax. On the server side we’ll be using C#, ASP.NET CORE MVC, combined with use of libraries like Entity Framework Core, Newtonsoft.Json and Npgsql for our data transformation and conversion operations. The operating system that we will be working on is Windows 10 and Server 2016.

 

Some skills that you can expect to derive after completing the course are the following:

  • You will learn how to build a Spatial Database using Postgresql and PostGIS.
  • You will learn how to create charts with Chart.js.
  • You will learn to build Web Maps with Leaflet.js.
  • You will learn how to build REST API Endpoints with C# and LINQ
  • You will learn some C# programming.
  • You will learn some JavaScript programming.
  • You will learn how to build Web Applications using the C# and ASP.NET Core MVC Framework.
