GeoNetwork opensource software: Publish GIS data online

GeoCat announced the release of GeoNetwork opensource 2.4.0 software. GeoNetwork opensource 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, and 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.

GeoNetwork opensource is part of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo, software stack, providing software you can trust to be free, open and sustainable. Voluntary support is provided through mailing lists, websites and online forums.
