November 25, 2010 – Esri Geoportal Server is a free, open source product that helps organizations manage and publish metadata for their geospatial resources. With Esri Geoportal Server, users can reduce time and redundancy of data production by connecting geospatial data and service producers with consumers. 

We found this information on Directions Magazine in the press release, “Esri Geoportal Server Helps Organizations Collaborate and Share Data.”  Maintaining data integrity is made easier by sharing the authoritative version of data throughout an organization.  

Esri Geoportal Server supports standards-based clearinghouse and metadata discovery applications. It was released under the Apache 2.0 license, which allows developers to customize and redistribute the software.
