Latest commit fd85342 Oct 9, 2018


As part of the evolution of Geoportal Server, the catalog capability has been separated into its own module. This is because there are use cases where the catalog can be used without the need for harvesting or even metadata editing.

This repository thus contains the catalog capability of Geoportal Server, while it's sibling geoportal-server-harvester is the new harvester of Geoportal Server.
