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:
