Discovery service

Discovery service is an application providing web service in accordance with the OGC CSW v2.0.2 specification and the INSPIRE implementing regulations for Network Services. The service allows to publicate and search descriptive information (metadata) about data and services in ESKN and ZBGIS.

The application interface offers:

  • Part for simple - fulltext search, which contains an input field for entering a search term, a dynamic cloud of the most frequently used expressions and a map window for determinig a spatial restriction.
  • Part for INSPIRE search, which contains input fields for entering INSPIRE parameters required by INSPIRE implementing rules.


The application also provides a brief and detailed view of a discovered metadata record, printing or saving of the discovered record in XML, as well as integration with ZBGIS Map client.

The application interface supports displaying in different languages. Ths option can be activated in the page header via the Language menu item. Changing this setting affects interface of the Discovery service, but it does not affect the search results list, the brief and detailed listing and the cloud of the most searched metadata records (if they are not created in the corresponding language).
