GeoBlacklight is a world-class discovery platform for geospatial (GIS) holdings. It is an open collaborative project aiming to build off of the successes of the Blacklight Solr-powered discovery interface and the multi-institutional OpenGeoportal and OpenGeoMetadata federated metadata sharing communities. We're actively looking for community input and development partners.


In order to create a new GeoBlacklight application from the template, run the following:

$ DISABLE_SPRING=1 rails new app-name -m

To launch app:

$ cd app-name
$ rake geoblacklight:server

Note that this method launches an application that does not have any fixture records to be examined. You may want to launch a test application that has fixture data loaded into a Solr core. If so, refer to the development guide. For further information on installing a blank app, see the installation guide
