This stack enables users to publish, discover, evaluate, and use spatial data through the web while maintaining OGC standards and ISO compliance. GeoNode also includes web cartography tools to compose, style, and publish maps in a range of formats, ensuring that data can be explored, shared, and repurposed. Furthermore, a system of user accounts and profiles will allow organizations and communities to facilitate discussions, identify reliable contributors, encourage collaborative participation, and secure data according to their needs. “This release is an important milestone for us, our collaborators at the World Bank, and everyone interested in promoting SDI. It represents additional commitment by the developers to the stability of the project. It is also the culmination of over a year and a half of hard work and collaboration on the part of developers, designers, domain experts, and users,” said Sebastian Benthall, Project Manager of GeoNode at OpenGeo.
