GeoNetwork for dummies, or how to setup and use an SDI in 3 hours
Jeroen Ticheler, GeoCat
The workshop will focus on the implementation of a GeoNetwork opensource based catalog to serve and access geospatial data in a Spatial Data Infrastructure. A local catalog will be installed and configured. Harvesting of spatial data resources from remote servers will be configured and geospatial web map services will be set up using the embedded GeoServer and configured for access through the catalog web interface. Participants will create INSPIRE compliant metadata and learn how to develop and use custom metadata templates based on the ISO19115/19119 metadata standards. Participants will learn to use the various different interfaces that GeoNetwork offers, such as the GUI Web Interface and the OGC CSW/ISO interface. Integration of proprietary and open source software will be demonstrated. For that, GeoCat Bridge will be used to create metadata and map services in GeoNetwork opensource and GeoServer directly from ESRI ArcGIS Desktop software. Attention will also be given to other import and export functionality of the catalog that allow integration of the publishing process in existing workflows.
