    Geospatial services

    Geospatial services currently focus on implementing the open source GeoNetwork Opensource application - a geospatial metadata catalogue and geographic data visualisation platform.

     

    GeoNetwork Opensource

    In order to ensure that stakeholders have access to environmental information resources, this system offers a platform for cataloguing geographic and non-geographic information resources, and is extensively used by international, regional and national agencies worldwide.

    GeoNetwork Opensource is a standards-based and open source web catalogue, implementing international standards for metadata content and system interoperability. Its main features include a geospatial catalogue application, providing metadata editing and advanced search and discovery capabilities, and an integrated map viewer.


    Okavango Collections

    Recent work includes developing the Okavango Collections metadata catalogue. Commissioned by the Permanent Okavango River Basin Water Commission (OKACOM), Okavango Collections provides a searchable directory of collections of data, data sets, image archives, books, reports and other information available both in the region and in other parts of the world.

    Key development challenges included the creation of a regional geographic names thesaurus as a controlled vocabulary for place keywords, an email notification system to facilitate ongoing maintenance of metadata records, and enhancing search and discovery functionality.

    In addition to providing an important environmental information service for the Cubango-Okavango region, Okavango Collections offers a model system for implementation elsewhere.

     

    Okavango CollectionsOkavango Collections is the starting point for finding out about collections of information resources related to the Cubango-Okavango River Basin in Angola, Botswana and Namibia. OKACOM Secretariat has identified and updated relevant sources of information to ensure access to reliable and appropriate data to support researchers, planners and managers working in the Basin.

    It will be subsequently located at the OKACOM main site: http://www.okacom.org
