AtlasStyler SLD editor

AtlasStyler is a user-friendly application to style geodata. The resulting styles can be saved to XML files that follow the OGC SLD/SE standard 1.0.

The AtlasStyler is a "stand-alone" application, that can be used independently for any vector data. ESRI Shapefiles, OGC WFS and PostGIS datasources are supported. Automatic upload of the SLD styles to Geoserver will be possible soon.

SLD Editor

The created SLD files are compatibel with GeoServer, uDig, Geotools-based applications and all other programs that use the OGC SLD standard.

The application provides a multiplicity of intuitive dialogs that allow to create style productively - without dealing with any XML. You can apply abstract classifications like unique values, colored quantiles or equal distance; additionally you have integrated access to an online symbol-database. You can create and save symbols in the SymbolEditor and reuse you symbols in classifications or other projects.
