Better Manage Your Metadata

Esri Geoportal Server helps manage the metadata for your geospatial resources. Metadata makes your data more useful to people because it provides an overview and technical specifications for your data.

This LiveDVD runs the geoportal on preconfigured versions of Apache Tomcat and PostreSQL on the OpenSUSE Linux operating system. It was created using SUSE Studio image creation tool.

Esri Geoportal Server was released under the Apache 2.0 license, which allows developers to freely customize and redistribute the software. Source code and documentation are available on GitHub.
