Entry ID: Canada_Geodiscover
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The GeoConnections Discovery Portal, formerly the Canadian Earth Observation
Network (CEONet), is where Canadians and others interested in Canadian
geospatial data have been coming since 1997 to discover, evaluate and access
geospatial data products and services. The GeoConnections Discovery Portal
provides infrastructure tools and services to serve a wide range of Canadian
stakeholders. It is offered free for any organization or individual to use.
Registering and advertising, having your geospatial data remotely searched, as
well as having access to free software tools and Internet-accessible services
are indeed bonuses. Technical help and support are also available free of
charge. These are important considerations when looking for a data discovery
solution for your organization. The Discovery Portal is ideally suited for
geospatial data discovery with it geographic focus, fielded searches and
library like functionality.
