Installing using a ZIP file

For Linux, macOS and Windows users, a zipped GeoNetwork distribution is available that includes the following:

  • GeoNetwork application

  • Jetty servlet container

  • Shell scripts (.sh, .bat) to start and stop GeoNetwork

Please download the desired ZIP file and extract it to a preferred location on your machine. When done, open the containing folder and navigate to the bin folder. This should include 2 .sh files that can be used to start and stop GeoNetwork (use the .bat files on Windows). Please double-click on the file to start the server.

In the application root folder, you will find a readme.html file that includes some details on how to get started with GeoNetwork. Double-click it to view it in your browser.

Then install the Elasticsearch instance (see Installing search platform).
