Canton of Bern (Switzerland) has launched beginning April 2011 its new multilingual Geoportal web site http://www.be.ch/geoportal, based on EasySDI solution.
This new EasySDI sponsor has brought the new version of CATALOG which allow him to:
- manage more then 5000 versionalized metadata
- describe geoproducts, layers and maps
- offer by simple download corresponding data
The solution is based on Open Source projects driven by Geonetwork for storing/publishing ISO19115 metadata and EasySDI for managing metadata in an all-in-one content management system built over Joomla.
Canton of Bern metadata will be opened soon for harvesting to the national catalog Geocat which centralizes all Swiss metadata.
