An open access geospatial data repository for the Whanganui District providing premier geospatial data sets.
The Whanganui Geospatial Data Portal is a geospatial content management system, a platform for the management and publication of geospatial data for the Whanganui District. It brings together mature and stable open-source software projects under a consistent and easy-to-use interface allowing non-specialized users to share data and create interactive maps.
Data management tools built into portal allow for integrated creation of data, metadata, and map visualizations. Each dataset in the system can be shared publicly or restricted to allow access to only specific users. Social features like user profiles and commenting and rating systems allow for the development of communities around each platform to facilitate the use, management, and quality control of the data the portal instance contains.
It is designed for the Whanganui District to easily manage geospatial data themes.
