GeoSHAPE – Geospatial capabilities for Security, Humanitarian Assistance, Partner Engagement – is designed to enable collaboration on geospatial information between mission partners in connected and disconnected operations. GeoSHAPE has been built utilizing open source software and open standards to make it available for partners and to maximize interoperability. GeoSHAPE is the integration of a geospatial portal (GeoNode), a web mapping client (MapLoom), and a mobile application (Arbiter), that leverages the infrastructure provided by a geospatial server and database components (The OpenGeo Suite). GeoSHAPE is the outcome of the Rapid Open Geospatial User-Driven Enterprise (ROGUE) Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD).
