Being Open Data Day I’ve decided today is the day to finally stop procrastinating and release my search engine to the world.
One of the big (and ill-addressed) problems with Open Data is finding the data you want. Sure there are 500 data portals on dataportals.org but, well that’s 500 data portals for someone to crawl through to try and find a single dataset.
So I’ve taken a stab at fixing that with GeoSeer. It’s a search engine for OGC complaint (WMS, WFS, WCS, WMTS) data - many of the sources are CKAN portals.
Feedback welcome. Also, feel free to share it with others.
