Blog written by Stacy Rendall, Principal Spatial Researcher, Interpret Geospatial Solutions
This blog introduces the five core technologies that make up the overall stack. My subsequent blogs in this series will describe some of the particular apps that I have found work well for each technology, and integrate together in my development environment. This series is not intended to be prescriptive, but food for thought about your environment in general.
The set of technologies consists of a few things you probably already use on a daily basis, some things you might have heard of but may not use yet, and possibly a few new concepts. I have ordered the technologies by the way in which they build upon each other or integrate together (which you can roughly think of as the order in which you might install/configure them). No matter which operating system you use or set of languages you develop for, this generalised stack of technologies should still apply (but the particular software you might use could be different).
Stay tuned for my upcoming blogs which will present some of the programs I use for each of these technologies, how to install and configure then, and how they all work together. I welcome your feedback or comments, at email@example.com.
