Dashboard for Visualization in Geospatial Intelligence Magazine

The Carbon Project's open source Dashboard for Geodata.gov makes an appearance in the latest edition of Geospatial Intelligence Forum magazine (above).

As you may recall from previous posts - The Carbon Project was selected to develop an open source desktop dashboard for Geodata.gov, the federal government service for maps and data. The project will develop a free application to enable "at-a-glance" visualization of geospatial assets and monitoring of Geospatial One-Stop (GOS) Portal search functions. The Dashboard is based on GeoRSS and Microsoft Gadgets - and enhances common RSS functions with the ability to configure searches, view geodata footprints on a mini-map, and access desktop GIS applications from ESRI and other vendors.

The project is sponsored by the 2009 NSDI Cooperative Agreements Program, and the software will be jointly designed in support of governmental activities by The Carbon Project, the US Army Corps of Engineers and other FGDC representatives.
A preview of the "GOS Dashboard" is available on YouTube. For users unable to access YouTube another version is here.
