GeoCat releases GeoCat Bridge 4.0 for QGIS Desktop! This plugin enables you to easily publish your maps (data and styling) online, as well as catalog them for discovery with GeoNetwork.
The GeoCat Bridge QGIS plugin supports publication to GeoServer, PostGIS, GeoNetwork, MapServer, local files, and GeoCat Live hosting. With this release the GeoCat team is excited to introduce our GeoCat Bridge customers to the QGIS Desktop community.
Connecting Desktop GIS to Online Services could not be easier!
GeoCat Bridge makes publishing data, styling, maps, and metadata to online services easy. Almost all the work is done for you. It also results in searchable maps by listing them with GeoNetwork.
“GeoCat’s Bridge facilitates the discovery and usability assessment of your datasets – with just a few clicks!”

“GeoCat’s Bridge makes publishing QGIS web maps trivial. A single step publishes both your data and styling online.”
