Geoserver uses SLD styling standards for styling its layers; which that writing CSS code to generate a custom style. The following steps shows how you can style buildings layer using Geoserver (pink border and grey fill). For more information please refer to Geoserver SLD code book in this link.

Write the layer SLD styling code in Style Editor (Don’t care about code, you will generate it using GeoGATE’s SLD Generator in the next section), and save it by clicking Submit button.
