Dominode is Dominica's Geonode, an open source platform for sharing geospatial data and maps. 

What is GeoNode?

GeoNode is a geospatial content management system, a platform for the management and publication of geospatial data. It brings together mature and stable open-source software projects under a consistent and easy-to-use interface allowing non-specialized users to share data and create interactive maps.

Data management tools built into GeoNode allow for integrated creation of data, metadata, and map visualizations. Each dataset in the system can be shared publicly or restricted to allow access to only specific users. Social features like user profiles and commenting and rating systems allow for the development of communities around each platform to facilitate the use, management, and quality control of the data the GeoNode instance contains.

It is also designed to be a flexible platform that software developers can extend, modify or integrate against to meet requirements in their own applications.

Who is it for?

Dominode is for anyone who needs geographic information on Dominica. For example, it would benefit schools and students as a way to learn about the country; professionals and Government Departments to use for analysis, styling and making maps; software developers who want to create their own apps; or for sharing documents and geographic data.  To understand Dominode it is best to explore the site and see how it can benefit you. See www.dominode.dm
