We're happy to announce the release of GeoNetwork opensource 2.2.0.
This is a mayor 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.
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 (CSW2.0 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.
This release is also the milestone for the Open Source Geospatial
Foudation (OSGeo, http://www.osgeo.org) incubation process the project
is going through. The GeoNetwork Project Steering Committee will now
ask OSGeo to graduate the project.
Thanks and congratulations to the all community members!
