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 tiresome tooing and froing to ensure your records are correct. We’ve also tried to make the error messages a little more friendly too, so it’s easier to understand if things do go wrong!

What’s next?


We’re currently testing the Gemini 2.2 profile against Geonetwork 3.4.x, and all signs point towards it working just fine. As soon as we’ve finished fully testing everything, we’ll update the repository and documentation to take this into account.

When Gemini 2.3 is released we will begin testing a new plugin, with the new schematron rules and any additional changes. This will include tools for translating from Gemini 2.2 to 2.3. The timescale for this is dependent on the official release of the new standard and the guidance as to what should happen to existing metadata published under Gemini 2.2.

Making home working work!

I was chatting to a personal acquaintance recently about work and we got on to the subject of home working. The organisation she worked for was going through a period of change and they were planning on moving some of their office staff to home working on a permanent basis. She was after my views on how we manage to make that work effectively at Astun. This blog, which is very much a manager's perspective, is what I told her!

Before we get on to to the two key themes of this blog - the Technical and Cultural - a quick bit about Astun first! 1. Astun's circumstances We employ around 21 people, of which 6 or so work from an office in Epsom, and the rest work from home on a permanent basis. From my home in Bristol, I line manage 13 of those people, 3 of which are office based, the rest primarily work in the UK, as far north as Tyneside & Lancaster and as far south as Southampton. I have one member of the team who is based in Seville in Spain.

Reflections on FOSS4G UK Edinburgh 2019

Six members of the Astun team recently headed en mass to the Free and Open Source Software for Geo (FOSS4G) UK conference in Edinburgh - and we came back with a 7th!

FOSS4G is a great forum to find out all the latest on what is going on in the OSGeo community and to spread the word via talks and workshops about some of the exciting work we’ve been involved in. Check out the post to find out about our own personal reflections of the event … and find out who our latest recruit is in the final post!

Dan The FOSS4G UK conference just seems to get better and better each year, and this year was no exception. As the baton gets passed annually to a new organising team, the advice and guidance on running a great event goes with it. This year’s team led by co-chairs Tom Armitage and Ross McDonald did an amazing job. The venue was breathtaking, the agenda was packed with outstanding talks and workshops and the atmosphere both during the day and in the evening social just had a great buzz to it. …
