What is a CSW

A Catalogue Service for the Web, is a standard in where one can search for datasets in an online Catalogue. To search for data, the user enters a keyword to search on. All the datasets that contain the keyword in their metadata, will pop up. A dataset can then be downloaded in different (geo) data formats. The CSW standard is defined by the OGC, the Open Geospatial Consortium.

How to insert a CSW URL

There are already two Catalogues provided by default to search for data.

  • ArcGIS Online: Catalogue service from Esri in where users of ArcGIS Online can publish their Open Data
  • PDOK: This Catalogue service is the Nationaal Georegister in where Dutch Open Data is published from various (governmental) organizations

It is also possible to provide another CSW.

The CSW can be loaded in the Tygron Platform by using the Geo Data Wizard. Choose the third option: "Search for data in a Catalog Service". In the next step, you will be asked to provide a name and the URL for the CSW. If the CSW is published with ArcGIS Server, choose ESRI as output type, otherwise choose CSW.

How to Insert a CSW into the Tygron Platform:

  1. Choose a name for the CSW
  2. Provinde the URL of the CSW (the GetCapabilities part can be omitted)
  3. If the CSW is published through ArcGIS Server, choose ESRI, otherwise choose CSW
