Gemini 2.2 Profile for Geonetwork

Astun are pleased to announce that we’ve released our implementation of the Gemini 2.2 metadata profile as an official plugin for Geonetwork 3.0.x and later versions, and that it’s now available at the official Geonetwork metadata profile site metadata101.org.

So what does this mean?
It means that you can use Gemini 2.2 as a metadata standard within Geonetwork for creating records that can be published to data.gov.uk or for your own use. Installation is easy, just follow the instructions at the repository, making sure you pick the branch that matches your Geonetwork installation.

By creating a separate plugin for Gemini 2.2, it can be used alongside other profiles such as Medin, and Gemini 2.3 when it’s released. You can ensure your metadata is stored and validated against the correct profile, and that you see the correct dropdown lists and hints when you’re creating or editing records.

We’ve made sure that the validation rules align with those used on data.gov.uk, so no more tiresom…
