For installation instructions please look at
There are no special dependencies on the LINUX distribution. We tested the installation on Fedora 36, Centos 7, and RHEL 7.
Code is still under development and comes with no guarantees.
In the original project the database is managed by 'metacatalog', but just for
testing the project, you can set
managed = False in all
models.py before you run migrations.
vforwater-portal is a Django project (we testet Django 3.2, python 3.7)
The following components are needed:
- PostGIS (we testet postgresql 9.6, 10.6, 11.2 + postgis 2.4, 2.5)
- Geoserver - to show data on the map (we testet 2.12.2 and 2.14.1, Oracle Java + tomcat or OpenJDK)
