GeoNetwork opensource - Geographic data sharing for everyone
GeoNetwork opensource is a standards based and decentralized spatial information
management environment, designed to enable access to geo-referenced databases,
cartographic products and related metadata from a variety of sources, enhancing the
spatial information exchange and sharing between organizations and their audience,
using the power of the Internet. This approach of geographic information management
provides a wide community of spatial information users with easy and timely access to
available spatial data and to existing thematic maps that support informed
The main goal of the GeoNetwork opensource software is to improve the accessibility
of a wide variety of data, together with the associated information, at different
scale and from multidisciplinary sources, organized and documented in a standard and
consistent way.
GeoNetwork opensource has initially been developed by the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the UN, the UN World Food Program, The UN Environment Programme and
is rapidly expanding its project community beyond the UN system.
