Managing Geospatial Research Data and Sensor Data Streams with GeoNode
Customization and extension of a GeoNode instance to support the management of research data and sensor data streams
The Centre for Earth Observation Science at the University of Manitoba operates a data repository that hosts its research data and is used to share research data based on the FAIR principles. This platform is currently undergoing a redevelopment process. It will rely on GeoNode to cover the sharing of spatial data and use the OGC SensorThings API standard for sharing real-time meteorological and water quality data. Special consideration is given to optimizing an initial instance of GeoNode, integrating the data offered via CKAN and SensorThings API instances into GeoNode, and developing user centric data dashboards for meteorological and mooring datasets. 52°North supports the University of Manitoba in this redevelopment process.
Our activities in 2021 mainly focused on establishing a stable, initial setup of GeoNode and developing an approach for integrating metadata about SensorThings API instances.
