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 Tracer™ Information Blog. This has been added to Knowledge Discovery Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to my white paper Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources.
