Greetings and Happy Earth Day,
Apologies for any cross postings.
Stanford University Libraries is happy to introduce EarthWorks [https://earthworks.stanford.edu], our new geospatial data discovery application. EarthWorks allows you to discover and download GIS data and maps from a variety of institutions.
The software is built on top of the open-source project GeoBlacklight [http://geoblacklight.org], which adds geospatial capabilities to the widely used discovery system Project Blacklight [http://projectblacklight.org/]. GeoBlacklight is the product of an ongoing software collaboration between MIT, Princeton, and Stanford. Contributions and collaborators are most welcome! https://github.com/geoblacklight/geoblacklight/wiki/Contributing GeoBlacklight can be used on its own, or as part of GeoHydra, an emerging suite of tools for managing geospatial data assets within a Hydra data repository. For more information about GeoHydra, please see the interest group wiki https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/hydra/Hydra+Geospatial+Interest+Group .
Metadata sharing for EarthWorks is enabled through collaboration with the OpenGeoPortal project [http://opengeoportal.org/] and the new OpenGeoMetadata initiative [https://github.com/OpenGeoMetadata/metadatarepository].
EarthWorks also uses GeoMonitor [https://geomonitor.stanford.edu/] to monitor the availability of data being provided by the network of collaborating institutions.
Questions about EarthWorks, GeoBlacklight, GeoMonitor, or how we collaborate with OpenGeoMetadata can be directed to [log in to unmask] .
