Geodata Homepage Draft

Jump to: navigation, search

https://geodata.osgeo.org/ has a very basic holding page right now.

This is a planning space for what the group in the Public Geospatial Data Project would like to see on its website.

Questions to consider:

  • Who the audience is
    • Experts who know what they're looking for
    • Novices who would like some guidance
    • People new to the domain who need very basic explanations of what's being provided.

How we get a website off the ground easily, and how we plan for geodata search services in the future, can feed very usefully into the Infrastructure Working Group.
