The Search box in the navigation bar (see the picture below) let you type a text and find all the data which have to deal with that text.
When you trigger a search you are brought to the Search page which shows you the search result through all data types.
Try to set some filter and see how the resulting data list changes accordingly. An interesting type of filter is EXTENT: you can apply a spatial filter by moving or zooming a map within a box as shown in the picture below.
Data can be ordered by date, name and popularity.
The GeoNode welcome page offers you many other options to find resources.
The Search for data tool allows you to search for data by name.
The Search page, which you will be redirected to, will have the TEXT filter already set with the name you have typed in the search box (see the picture below). If you want to reach the Search page directly, without any input text, you can click the Advanced Search link.
In the Home page section shown below are listed all the categories available in the GeoNode instance you are using. You can search for data by category by clicking on it.
In the Search page, data will be filtered by that category.
- The Featured Datasets section (see the picture below) shows you aggregate data about Layers, Maps, Documents and Users. You can trigger a search on layers by clicking on the Layers icon, the same happens for Maps, Documents and Users. The Explore all datasets drive you to the Search page with no filter on data types.In this section there are also useful quick links to add new resources: the Add layers drives you to the layer uploading page, the Add documents to the document uploading page and the Create maps guide you to the map creation.
For each data type GeoNode makes available an individual Search page, the next paragraphs will explain that in depth. For Users see Viewing other users information.
When you are searching for Documents you can:
use the Documents quick link of the Featured Datasets section as described above
click on the Documents link of the Data menu in the navigation bar
The Documents search page looks like the generic one but only Document is considered as data type. You can filter documents by CATEGORIES, as in the example below, or by TEXT, KEYWORDS and so on. You can also use more than one filter at the same time.
To find Layers you can:
use the Layers quick link of the Featured Datasets
click on the Layers link of the Data menu in the navigation bar
If you are searching for Maps you can:
use the Maps quick link of the Featured Datasets section as described above
click on the Explore Maps link of the Maps menu in the navigation bar
As seen for the other data types, the Maps search page allows you to filter your maps by a combination of criteria. The example below shows maps filtered by REGIONS.
