GeoNode (http://geonode.org/) is a platform for the management and publication of geospatial data. It brings together mature and stable open-source software projects under a consistent and easy-to-use interface allowing users, with little training, to quickly and easily share data and create interactive maps. GeoNode provides a cost-effective and scalable tool for developing information management systems. GeoNode uses CSW as a cataloguing mechanism to query and present geospatial metadata.
pycsw supports binding to an existing GeoNode repository for metadata query. The binding is read-only (transactions are not in scope, as GeoNode manages repository metadata changes in the application proper).
To connect pycsw to GeoNode’s repository, the following steps are required:
- set repository.source to geonode (repository.database is not required in this context)
- set repository.mappings to /path/to/mappings.py (repository.database is not required in this context)
At this point, pycsw is able to read from the GeoNode repository using the Django ORM.
