Geoconnect

Geoconnect is an application that integrates Dataverse and the Harvard WorldMap, allowing researchers to visualize their geospatial data. Geoconnect can be used to create maps of shapefiles or of tabular files containing geospatial information.

The diagram below shows the relationship between Dataverse installations, Geoconnect and the WorldMap:

Note: To use Geoconnect, your Dataverse installation cannot be behind a firewall.

To use Geoconnect:

  1. Email support@dataverse.org with the full URL to your Dataverse installation.
  2. Once you receive confirmation that the first step is completed, set these Dataverse settings to true:
  3. Make sure your Dataverse is pointing to the correct Geoconnect server.

I would like to run Geoconnect myself but still use the Harvard WorldMap

This isn't recommended but is possible by using the installation instructions above and then doing the following:

  1. Create a Worldmap username/password: https://worldmap.harvard.edu/accounts/register/
  2. Contact WorldMap support (worldmap@harvard.edu) asking for the new username to be placed in the group dataverse
  3. In your Geoconnect settings, update the following variable values to your new WorldMap username/password.
    1. WORLDMAP_ACCOUNT_USERNAME
    2. WORLDMAP_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD
