Go-Geo! – Geo-Spatial Datasets and Related Resources

Go-Geo! is the UK academic spatial data portal operated and maintained by EDINA National Data Centre, University of Edinburgh. The portal is a key component of the UK academic Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and is financially supported by the Joint Information Services Committee (JISC). Go-Geo! offers access to information about all things spatial for researchers, teaching staff and students in UK further and higher education institutions. It’s principle function is as a data discovery tool, searching metadata catalogues across the UK. This is now augmented by a Metadata Editor tool, allowing individuals to create and edit their own metadata to describe spatial data they either have collected or curate. Go-Geo! also offers links to other GI-related quality controlled resources, such as books in print, photographs, online mapping and data services, software, training courses, events, discussion forums and useful organisations. Go-Geo! aims to support the full research project life cycle. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracerô Information Blog. This has been added to Knowledge Discovery Subject Tracerô Information Blog. This will be added to my white paper Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources.
