GeoMetaFacet  is a web client to explore and visualize geodata. It focuses on a user-friendly and interactive navigation through the metadata and allows the user to quickly get an overview of available data.
Core features of GeoMetaFacet are an interactive data lineage graph and a hierarchy tree, which can be used to evaluate available data. Furthermore several map functionalities, e.g. time series data visualization, geographic search with gazetteer Geonames are integrated into the web client.
GeoMetaFacet is a simple Java and Javascript based application, which uses metadata that are stored in an OGC compliant Web Catalog Service (CSW). It is published as open source software under the Apache Software License, Version 2.0 and the source code is available on GitHub:
GeoMetaFacet is supported by the research project GLUES (project factsheet).
