ckanext-spatial - Geo related plugins for CKAN

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 ckanext-geoview.

Full documentation, including installation instructions, can be found at:
