GeoStream has been designed so that you can move from using local data files to fetching data from a GeoStream server with almost no code changes. When developing GeoStream applications, however, it can be helpful to understand the important ways that GeoStream differs from a GeoBase application based on local data. The following topics explain some of these differences.
