The State of the GeoNode Project
GeoNode is a web based Content Management System (CMS) for geospatial data and provides the the essential components for a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) node. It is based on mature open source projects including Django, PostGIS, GeoServer and OpenLayers. The project recently released the 2.4 version and usage has exploded all around the world including several downstream projects that are large collaborative efforts in their own right. This presentation will review the current state of the GeoNode project, reviewing what GeoNode is, how it’s used by organizations from Governments and NGOs to consultancies and engineering firms and the downstream projects based on it (Harvard WorldMap, GeoSHAPE, MapStory and many others) as well as reviewing several new and upcoming features and the projects Roadmap. The project’s vision for the future will also be presented.
