GeoCat Bridge helps to bridge the gap between proprietary and open source solutions. The goal of this product is to provide a solution that makes it extremely easy for users to publish their data on a GeoNetwork, GeoServer and/or MapServer based server solution. The tool converts the ArcMap symbology to symbology optimized for GeoServer and MapServer. Data can be loaded to the server on the file system or straight into PostGIS. It manages metadata at the source and publishes it as clean ISO19139 metadata. This extension creates a bridge where both proprietary, open source solution providers and open standards supporters are winners.
