OpenGeo Suite Logo The OpenGeo Suite 1.0, is an integrated platform of open source applications for the creation and provisioning of maps and spatial data. The suite consists of GeoServer, OpenLayers, GeoWebCache, the PostGIS PostgreSQL extensions and the GeoExt JavaScript toolkit for mapping applications. The suite, which is also available as a community edition for free download, will cost between $8,000 to $98,000 for the supported enterprise version. Options range from basic technical support through support for Oracle, clustering and enterprise security and up to a 2 hour support response time and training. The enterprise version is available on 30 day trial.

The GPL licensed GeoServer allows users to share and modify geo-spatial data. The BSD licensed OpenLayers and GeoExt both provide JavaScript support for browser based viewing of the data. PostGIS enalbles PostgreSQL to store and query spatial data through a GPL licensed extension to the database and GeoWebCache is an LGPL licensed server which helps optimise the display of maps by caching the WMS data returned from the server before passing it on to requesting clients.

OpenGeo is part of the non-profit The Open Planning Project (TOPP). TOPP focuses its efforts on bringing open source geo-mapping to public sector and transport agencies. OpenGeo says it has already sold its Enterprise Suite to Portland's TriMet, the central GIS agency of the state of Massachusetts, Finland's Ministry of Agriculture and an un-named UN organisation.
