June 2007: Volume 12 Issue 2
The Go-Geo! portal for geospatial data is being redesigned and improved. As of the start of the academic year 2007-2008, the new-look Go-Geo! will offer a new mapping interface for the UK, a dedicated page with metadata resources (including the metadata teaching and learning modules), information about metadata workshops, links to standards and support documentation for UK AGMAP (a metadata application profile created to support the documentation of spatial data).
Other design enhancements:
Following the release of the new look Go-Geo!, the team will extend the portal to provide links to data catalogues for international data and GI-related resources in support of academics and students conducting research in other countries. This is an important step towards Go-Geo! becoming a major component of the Spatial Data Infrastructure for UK academia.
