pg_featureserv is a PostGIS-based feature server written in Go. It is a lightweight, low-configuration RESTful web service that provides access to spatial data stored in PostGIS tables, as well as spatial processing capability based on PostGIS spatial functions. The service API follows the OGC API for Features Version 1.0 standard. It extends the API to expose more of the powerful spatial capabilities of PostGIS.

This guide walks you through how to install and use pg_featureserv for your spatial applications. The Usage section goes in-depth on how the service works. We’ll soon be adding more basic examples of web map applications that source feature data from pg_featureserv.
