Spatial Data Hub is a web application built for scientific researchers to explore, advertise, and share spatial research data without storing it in a specific database. Most research data tools are focused on data accessibility, as defined by the FAIR data principles ( Spatial Data Hub is a data findability tool with the goal of becomming a top Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data displaying website. Work on Spatial Data Hub began in May 2016 and has continued since. However, lately the focus has shifted to preparing a scientific manuscript describing Spatial Data Hub for peer review and publication. The project is based out of the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research in Bremen, Germany. We plan to keep the code behind the website as simple as possible, while staying up to date with the latest trends. Further functionality will be added as the project matures.

If you would like to see the source code for the website visit our github page.
