This project sought to develop open-source portlets and a standalone client to utilize the GOS maps and data services to support the Earth and geography science communities. It was executed through a partnership among George Mason University’s joint Center for Intelligent Spatial Computing (CISC), the Federation of Earth Science Information Partnership (ESIP), and the Cyberinfrastructure Specialty Group (CISG) within the American Association of Geographers (AAG).
The project was accomplished on time, producing an operational UniPortal for searching, querying, visualizing and integrating GOS map resources. Three supporting documents were developed for users to customize the portal, to deploy the portal on their own server, and operating the portal. The project source code has been released to the public through SourceForge. The compiled project, source code, and related documents can be downloaded from here. This portal developed can be further customized as 1) portlet to embed in any portal; 2) standalone client for accessing GOS map resources.
