OSGeo is pleased to announce that the GeoNetwork opensource project has graduated from the incubation process and is now a full fledged OSGeo project with Jeroen Ticheler appointed as project representative (Vice President, GeoNetwork).
GeoNetwork opensource is a catalog application to manage spatially referenced resources. It provides powerful metadata editing and search functions as well as an embedded interactive web map viewer.
Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community operation, a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license verification and general good project operation. Graduating incubation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
