hm not sure if I got what you need, generally those informations are the
layers themselves and since geonode loads them in the db then you can do
queries there. Anyway take a look at this
https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode-project is the common way we use to
extend geonode and develop custom apps. If you use geonode 2.4 then use the
2.4 branch of the project.
