This extension contains plugins that add geospatial capabilities to CKAN, including:
- A spatial field on the default CKAN dataset schema, that uses PostGIS as the backend and allows to perform spatial queries and to display the dataset extent on the frontend.
- Harvesters to import geospatial metadata into CKAN from other sources in ISO 19139 format and others.
- Commands to support the CSW standard using pycsw.
Note: The view plugins for rendering spatial formats like GeoJSON have been moved to ckanextggeoview.
Full documentation, including installation instructions, can be found at:
For contributing to ckanext-spatial or its documentation, follow the same guidelines that apply to CKAN core, described in CONTRIBUTING.
