Geoportal Server is a standards-based, open source product that enables discovery and use of geospatial resources including data and services. Check out What's New in the latest version!

Geoportal Server allows you to catalog the locations and descriptions of your organization's geospatial resources in a central repository called a geoportal, which you can publish to the Internet or your intranet. Visitors to the geoportal can search and access these resources to use with their projects. If you grant them permission, visitors can also register geospatial resources with the geoportal. Geoportals give you an enterprise-level view of your geospatial resources regardless of their type or location. Resources are registered with a geoportal using metadata, which describes the location, age, quality, and other characteristics of the resources. With access to this information about resources, an organization can make decisions based on the best resources available. Geoportal Server has been hosted on SourceForge since 2010, and moved to this location on GitHub in 2013 as part of Esri's larger effort to support developers of the Esri platform with open source apps, samples, and SDKs.

With the Geoportal Server you can:

  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of geospatial activities within your enterprise and across organizations.
  • Support collaboration and cooperation among departments and organizations by facilitating the sharing of geospatial resources regardless of the GIS platform.
  • Gain an enterprise-level awareness of disparate geospatial data, Web services, and activities.
  • Leverage existing geospatial resources so your organization doesn't duplicate those resources or the effort to create them.
  • Ensure the use of approved, high-quality datasets.
  • Reduce the time users spend trying to find relevant, usable geospatial resources.

Geoportal Server documentation is broken down into three buckets: a wiki, Javadoc for server components, and JavaScript documentation for the Geoportal XML Editor.

  • This wiki hosts topics for how to install, configure, customize, and use the Geoportal Server and its related components.
  • The Javadoc describes the Java packages used in the Geoportal Server web application.
  • The Geoportal Server XML Editor (GXE) documentation explains its JavaScript classes and XML elements and configuration files.
