GeoCat Bridge© for QGIS enables you to publish your metadata in a spatial catalogue (CSW), like GeoNetwork opensource, and your map as OGC data services (WMS/WMTS/WFS/WCS) in GeoServer or MapServer. Bridge also offers the option to export metadata, symbology and/or data to your local computer as files.

This plugin has been developed by GeoCat.
