is focusing on integrating technology, policies, standards, human resources and related activities necessary to acquire, process, distribute, use, maintain, and preserve spatial information.

The new EnerGEO Geoportal is online! Its new style aims to make geo-knowledge access easier and more intuitive. You can find metadata using the discovery app and add metadata after logging in.
EU FP7 EnerGEO
EnerGEO aims at developing a global observation strategy to monitor and forecast the environmental impacts generated by energy resources exploitations.
The EnerGEO knowledge portal is the structured gateway to web mapping applications and the Geoportal search for distributed spatial resources on energy.
A Geoportal is a gateway to web-based geospatial resources that enables users to discover, view and access geospatial information, services and applications made available by their providing organizations. Likewise, data providers use the Geoportal to make their geospatial resources discoverable, viewable, and accessible to others.
A resource, in geoportal terms, is data, a service, an application or any other repository that hosts information. Resources can be metadata records, web services, Wikipedia articles, Flickr® content, YouTube videos, SharePoint® documents, RSS feeds, KML documents, REST URLs, metadata catalogs, and more.
As a part of the EU FP7 project EnerGEO, a Geoportal was created fulfilling the purpose of providing information on existing resources from the energy domain to a broad audience using standards for technical interoperability as well as efficient discovery mechanisms. Besides technical interoperability, the emphasis of the EnerGEO Geoportal is on semantic interoperability.
The new knowledge portal represents a structured user interface as common gateway to Geoportal discovery functionality as well as web mapping applications. Those applications were developed in cooperation of the Studio iSPACE - Research Studios Austria Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, MINES PARISTECH and the Centre for Geoinformatics (Z_GIS) at the University of Salzburg.
While the knowledge portal offers a comprehensive way for accessing applications that intend to disseminate usable knowledge in energy questions, the Geoportal resource discovery provides enhanced funtionality for distributed search, auto-suggestion lists, recommender-enhanced discovery and semantic matching of spatial and non-spatial content.
