This workshop will guide participants through the process of setting up and customizing a GeoNode based project that can be deployed to provide an OGC standards compliant Spatial Data Infrastructure
GeoNode is an easy to use application and platform for developing web based Geospatial Information Systems and for deploying interoperable Spatial Data Infrastructure. It’ designed to be a flexible platform that software developers can extend, modify or integrate against to meet requirements in their own applications.This workshop will guide participants through the process of setting up and customizing a GeoNode based project that can be deployed to provide an OGC standards compliant Spatial Data Infrastructure. The participants will learn about the pre-requisites necessary to do GeoNode development as well as being given an introduction to the core modules that are used within GeoNode. GeoNode was started by the World Bank and OpenGeo to provide a web 2.0 social layer on top of traditional ‘Spatial Data Infrastructure’ (SDI) technology. It builds upon a complete stack of open source software, including GeoServer, OpenLayers, GeoExt, GeoWebCache PostGIS, pycsw and Django to provide full OGC web services with deep permissioning controls. The workshop will be based primarily on materials found in a module of the developers workshop here. http://geonode.github.com/workshops/devel/projects/index.html#projects
