GeoNode provides out-of-the-box functionalities to create a complete GIS platform as it provides data and metadata management as well as rapid mapping capabilities to go from raw data to maps and geostories with no development. Organizations use GeoNode to easily setup a Geospatial Portal to enable users to ingest, share, browse, preview, visualize and disseminate data.
GeoNode allows users to:
- upload data while managing permissions:
- edit data online (both geometries and attributes)
- prepare metadata
- style the data visually
- search and browse existing data
- visualize directly or as part of Maps (eventually with widgets) or GeoStories
- filter and download data
- upload geospatial data like shapefiles, CSV files and GeoTiff files as well as ancillary documents like PDF, Images, Videos, with the possibility to enable time based visualizations, as shown below.
GeoNode provides a rich administration user interface which provides analytics of user access as well as monitoring information of hardware and software resources.
GeoNode is an Open Source and available for free. It is written in Python and leverages well-known and robust open source products like:
