CatalogConnector (OGC-CSW)


New version 1.0.1 with search capabilities based with OpenSearch-geo implementation !!

CatalogConnector is a Client Application based in Java which allows sending requests to several metadata catalogs with OGC CSW (Catalog Service for the Web) implementations and processing the responses in a unitary way. The program basis were developed by the IDEC’s S.C. , within theIDE Univers.

CatalogConnector should make possible asking and discovering geospatial information about Catalonia, described in other metadata catalogues of local, state and/or European order.

At this moment, it’s feasible to make requests to catalogs based in products as GeoNetwork, GeoMedia,CatalogCube and Indicio but it’s possible to easily extend the support to other kinds of products.
