How-to share geospatial data on the web

On this tutorial we will explore how to share geospatial data on the web, in a simple and efficient way. You can use the provided dataset or use your own dataset, in order to implement the pipeline to make it available with a REST API, using a stack of free and open source software.
We will conclude by exploring the deployed service using a swagger endpoint and postman, but "sky is the limit" in terms of client applications which could consume this dataset.
In order to complete this, you will only need some basic knowledge of docker and docker-compose. The links used in the tutorial are listed bellow. Have fun!🙃
