By combining collaboration found in social networks with specialized geospatial tools, GeoNode makes it easy to explore, process, style, and share maps and geospatial data.
Spatial datasets can be imported and shared, all through a non-technical user interface.
GeoNode makes it easy to upload and manage geospatial data on the web. Any user can upload and make content available via standard OGC protocols such as Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Feature Service (WFS). Data is available for browsing, searching, styling, and processing to generate maps which can be shared publicly or restricted to specific users only.
Supported upload formats include shapefile, GeoTIFF, KML and CSV. In addition, it is possible to connect to existing external spatial databases and services.
GeoNode comes with helpful cartography tools for styling and composing maps graphically. These tools make it easy for anyone to assemble a web-based mapping application with functionality traditionally found in desktop GIS applications.
Users can gain enhanced interactivity with GIS-specific tools such as querying and measuring.
