Lowering the barrier to entry into SDI - Metadata has to be fun !
2021-09-29, 15:00–15:30, Puerto Iguazú

How do you convince users to put data into your SDI if they have to spend their precious time filling obscure metadata fields ?
At Camptocamp, we tried to make data and metadata collection easier for busy people: drag and drop geodata, check everything's correct, answer a few easy questions, and voilà ...

In this talk, we'll present the "datafeeder" module which we contributed to the geOrchestra SDI, based on the above scenario.

The datafeeder is a slick application, made with Spring Boot and Angular. It is fully integrated into the geOrchestra SDI, thus interacts with GeoNetwork and GeoServer through their APIs. Data is pushed to a PostGIS database.
The talk will go through the UIs, discuss the technical challenges behind, and evoke the upcoming development perspectives.
