Geospatial web-enablement for environmental data in New Zealand

This blog post can be seen as a sequel to a former blog post on the introduction on geospatial data sharing and spatial data infrastructures (SDI), where I explained the basics of OGC standards and web services. Quite some research organisations and governmental agencies already employ OGC standards to make data available online, often even free of charge for the public.

The non-Google public domain dataset

For the past few weeks I've been working with the HathiTrust's 300,000 document non-Google digitized public domain collection. It's easy enough to get your hands on the dataset; it is, after all, public domain and as such has no access restrictions--all it takes is a quick email to HathiTrust. They prefer to distribute the collection via rsync, and once your IP address is authorized on their server you're good to go.
