GeoNode is an open source framework designed to build geospatial content management systems (GeoCMS) and spatial data infrastructure (SDI) nodes. Its development was initiated by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) in 2009 and adopted by a large number of organizations in the following years. Using an open source stack based on mature and robust frameworks and software like Django, OpenLayers, PostGIS, GeoServer and pycsw, an organization can build on top of GeoNode its SDI or geospatial open data portal. GeoNode provides a large number of user friendly capabilities, broad interoperability using Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards, and a powerful authentication/authorization mechanism. Supported by a vast, diverse and global open source community, GeoNode is an official project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).
