The European Commission - Joint Research Centre is using GeoNode to provide a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for Syria Damage Assessment is proposed as a common platform to collect and disseminate geospatial analysis results which relate to the impact assessment of the Syrian crisis. The prime purpose of the site is to host documented data sets that describe impact in a consistent spatio-temporal manner. The data sets can be maintained through versioning and a consistent description of their lineage through meta-data records.

Bolivia is using GeoNode to develop a Geographical Data Infrastructure for the National Information System for Risk Reduction, composed by science and specialised sectors in the areas of; Risk management, Geological Survey, National Statistics, MilitaryGeographical Institute, Heath, Land, Water and education sectors. Each sector will have an instance of GeoNode, and all the be federated in one system orchestrated by the Civil Defence Office. A few examples of Bolivia's instances are below:

The University of the West Indies (UWI) Disaster Risk Reduction Centre (DRRC) and the World Bank collaborated on the "Caribbean Risk Atlas" project with the main goal of making spatial data on risk for hurricanes, earthquakes and floods in the Caribbean available on-line. Mona GeoInformatics Institute (MGI) built the "Cariska" web map application for this project on the GeoNode platform.

MapStory, as a compliment to Wikipedia, is a new dimension to the global data commons that empowers a global user community to organize all knowledge about the world spatially and temporally. Just as Wikipedia uses a MediaWiki, MapStory uses a GeoNode. Perhaps more important, MapStory is an infrastructure for enabling "MapStorytelling" as a means of communicating important issues to a global audience. In order to accomplish this, MapStory has sponsored temporal, social and narrative extensions to GeoNode. The goal is to enable any student, teacher or practitioner on Earth to tap the power of this new mode of conveying one's stories, arrayed across geography and as they unfold over time. MapStory will become the convening point where MapStorytellers of all kinds come to publish their expressions, and to critique each others' MapStories, leading to a consistently accumulating and improving global body of knowledge about global dynamics, worldwide, over the course of history.

Pacific Risk Information Systems (PaRIS) is one of the largest collections of geospatial information for the Pacific island region. PaRIS was assembled to provide detailed probabilistic risk information for 15 Pacific island countries for a range of decision makers including disaster risk management agencies. The perils covered are tropical cyclones (wind, storm surge and rain) and earthquakes (ground shaking, tsunami). The countries covered are Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. PaRIS was created by Applied GeoScience and Technology Division, Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SOPAC).

In 2011, a partnership was formed between Upande Limited and World Resources Institute to jointly build VirtualKenya.org in to provide improved access to high quality spatial data and cutting-edge mapping technology. The goal of the system is to enable more Kenyans to use and interact with spatial data in their educational and professional pursuits. VirtualKenya.org uses GeoNode to provide online access to publicly available spatial data sets and by offering users a number of interactive tools and learning resources for exploring these data.

In Reunion Island the CIRAD (French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development) needed a platform to collect geographic data in order to share spatial data, facilitate access by its teams, and better communicate research results. Using GeoNode, AWARE (Agricultural Web Atlas for REsearch) meets these needs by providing a catalog of geospatial data available at CIRAD in Reunion Island. The atlas is based on a profile management to respect the rules of confidentiality and broadcasting rights. AWARE targets a wide audience : researchers, agricultural professionals, teachers, funders... Its strength lies in its ability to share spatial information through some said users 'contributors' who can add layers, create maps without using GIS software. It is also possible to link documents to layers and maps. Finally, the atlas uses free technology solutions that implement OGC standards (WMS, WCS, WFS and OWS) ensuring interoperability with GIS software such as ArcGIS or QGIS.
