We're proud to announce the release of GeoNetwork opensource 2.4.0.
This is a major release for the project.
GeoNetwork opensource ( http://geonetwork-opensource.org ) is a
standards based geospatial catalog application that helps people and
organizations to organize and publish their geospatial data through
the web. It is currently used in numerous Spatial Data Infrastructure
initiatives across the world.
Important improvements have been made to ease of use, advanced
metadata editing, performance and interoperability making it one of
the most advanced, if not the most advanced geospatial metadata
catalog available on the market today.
The software provides an easy to use web interface to search
geospatial data across multiple catalogs, combine distributed map
services in the embedded map viewer, send annotated interactive maps
to friends by email, publish geospatial data using the online metadata
editing tools and optionally the embedded GeoServer map server.
Administrators have the option to manage user and group accounts,
configure the server through web based and desktop utilities and
schedule metadata harvesting from other catalogs.
You will find support for a number of metadata formats (ISO19115/19119
following ISO19139, FGDC and Dublin Core), a number of catalog
interfaces (OGC-CSW2.0.2 ISO profile client and server, OAI-PMH client
and server, GeoRSS server, GEO OpenSearch server, WebDAV harvesting,
GeoNetwork to GeoNetwork harvesting support).
A single, platform independent installer allows to install and run the
software on a PC or a server on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The
installer can be downloaded as an executable Windows file or as a
platform independent .jar installer. It creates a Start menu on
Windows computers. Command line installations are also possible for
remote installations. Please refer to chapter 6 of the manual for
detailed installation instructions.
The GeoNetwork community has been expanding quickly over the last
years. The current release has been possible because of all those that
contributed to the project through code contributions, testing, bug
reports and fixes as well as many suggestions.
GeoNetwork opensource is part of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation
(OSGeo, http://www.osgeo.org) software stack, providing software you
can trust tobe free, open and sustainable. Voluntary support is
provided through mailing lists, websites and online forums.
Several companies also provide commercial support to help
organizations to implement, integrate and maintain the software. You
can find them in the Service Provider directory on the OSGeo website.
Thanks and congratulations to the all community members!
