Metasearch is a dataset search plugin for QGIS. It was originally created by NextGIS and later adopted by the geopython community. We’ve recently worked on some improvements in Metasearch. You can now also query an OGC API Records endpoint from within QGIS. From that work we were able to advance the OGC API Records implementation in pygeoapi and GeoNetwork and share some valuable feedback to the OGC community about the emerging standard. Catch up on the latest ogcapi-records research and development and the choices being made to support data connectivity and automation.
There are a number of developments which bring more linked data into the world of the traditional geo data domain. And this is already happening all around us. Consider for example the introduction of json-ld output in pygeoapi and GeoServer, GeoJSON-ld support in Apache Fuseki, Dataset search via schema.org. So how can you best benefit from these developments? What are the challenges when linking these data communities.
This presentation talks about linked data from a traditional tabular GEO perspective. It introduces some of the key principles of linked data, tools and challenges to convert (meta)data to triples, graph validation, and visualization of triples in a traditional map context.
We'll present some of our efforts and experiences with improving SEO in the standard GeoNetwork software, and share some hints on how an administrator or data steward can optimize and monitor SEO via configuration.
Report about the state of the project; events, releases, roadmap. OGC API, scalability and UI update are the current topics.
Bridge is a plugin for QGIS, enabling you to publish (meta)data to the OSGeo server stack (GeoServer, GeoNetwork, Mapserver, PostGIS). We'll report about our plans and the adoption of Bridge and its internal modules by other projects.
QGIS demo as a generic Desktop capability.
Alongside the various OGC API server implementations, clients are in the process of being set up to interact with the OGC API services. In this talk we present some new capabilities of QGIS and GDAL to interact with OGC API’s.
