GeoNetwork is a digital library enabling you to find and access geospatial information. It allows data providers to systematically describe both their data and distribution services. A catalogue of data and distribution services can then be
published through the internet for use by anyone looking for geospatial information and they may be able to access it from a data distribution service listed in the catalogue. On-the-fly data conversion and re-projection have made direct data access from a distribution service a viable option for those with good Internet access.
By providing a catalogue for data and distribution services and facilities to exchange information with other catalogues as part of a network, GeoNetwork helps to organize and share geospatial information within and between the interoperable, spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) that many states are building.
