Implementing an open source spatio-temporal search platform for Spatial Data Infrastructures
The goal of HHypermap is to provide a framework for building and maintaining a comprehensive registry of web map services, and because such a registry is expected to be large, the system supports the development of clients with modern search capabilities such as spatial and temporal faceting and instant previews via an open API. Behind the scenes HHypermap scalably harvests OGC and Esri service metadata from distributed servers, organizes that information, and pushes it to a search engine. The system monitors services for reliability and uses that to improve search. End users will be able to search the SDI metadata using standard interfaces provided by the internal CSW catalogue, and will benefit from the enhanced search possibilities provided by an advanced search engine. HHypermap is built on an open source software stack.
