Styling a Map¶
When a new dataset is added to GeoServer the layer for it is usually assigned a very basic style. To properly visualize the data a style specific to that data must be created.
This tutorial walks through the steps to create a new style in GeoServer and provides an introduction to the Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) styling language.
Before continuing with this tutorial it is strongly recommended that the section Introduction to SLD be first read.
