FOSS4G-Asia 2023 Seoul

Welcome to Geonetwork
11-29, 13:30–13:50 (Asia/Seoul), Seoul Archive

Welcome to GeoNetwork and FOSS4G! GeoNetwork is a leading open-source web catalog for keeping track of the spatial information. For those transitioning to FOSS4G from an integrated environment we help explain how everything fits together.

This orientation session introduces GeoNetwork (as a software component), providing a high-level view to explain how foss4g software is intended to work together. If you are transitioning from an ESRI environment this critical talk to attend as open source technology is often presented in isolation.

This presentation covers:

  • We look at what GeoNetwork is for, the business challenge it is faced with, and the amazing technical approach taken by the technology.

  • We will show the the publishing workflow to see what is required, and look at how harvesting can jump start your catalog contents

  • We peek under the hood at how the editor works, and discover the central super-power of GeoNetwork

  • Look at examples of how GeoNetwork has been extended by organizations to see what is possible with this technology

GeoNetwork is an established technology - recognized as an OSGeo project and member of the foss4g community for over a decade. We would love to welcome you to the conference and share what this project has to offer.
