A multi-institutional open-source collaboration building a better way to find and share geospatial data.
Easy to customize
GeoBlacklight uses SASS and Twitter Bootstrap to enable adopters to easily customize their installation.
Built for longevity
Modularized software projects that enhance each other. Test coverage and documentation is a priority.
GeoBlacklight Project Showcase
The Big Ten Academic Alliance Geoportal aggregates metadata from 10 different institutions providing a single place to find and use data from multiple GIS data clearinghouses, FTP sites, and library catalogs.
The NYU Spatial Data Repository is a search and discovery platform for geospatial data created by NYU's Data Services. The application is the entry point for discovering and accessing NYU's spatial data collections.
The Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library offers a customized discovery experience for its map collection. This unique application combines GeoBlacklight with the ability to georeference maps and create custom map sets for instruction.
EarthWorks is Stanford University Libraries discovery tool for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data. It combines data sources from many institutions allowing users to search through tens of thousands of geospatial datasets.
Dash is an open source, community driven project that takes a unique approach to data publication and digital preservation. Dash focuses on search, presentation, and discovery and delegates the responsibility for the data preservation function to the underlying repository with which it is integrated. The service is based at the University of California Curation Center (UC3), a CDL program that aims to develop interdisciplinary research data infrastructure.
The Vector-Bourne Disease Network (VecNet) uses GeoBlacklight for spatial discovery of data, tagged citations, articles, and reports that support malaria eradication.
Virgo GIS is the discovery application for GIS datasets from the U.Va Library collections.
