The GeoNetwork project started out in year 2001 as a Spatial Data Catalogue System for the Food and Agriculture organisation of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP).

At present the project is widely used as the basis of Spatial Data Infrastructures all around the world.

The project is part of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and can be found at GeoNetwork opensource.
