This report presents the work carried out for the publication off geographic datasets to a web map server, using the metadata catalogue. 

The main concept is to be able from the metadata catalogue to quickly publish a layer to a WMS server. Datasets are uploaded using ZIP file (e;g. containing ESRI Shapefile format)

The layer configuration could also be handle from the web map server configuration panel.

GeoNetwork project has been improved on two aspects :

• new Graphical user interface

• geo publication mechanism

 Those 2 proposals have been specified, developed and proposed to the community. Currently geopublication mechanism is available in GeoNetwork trunk (in coming 2.7.x series) and the GUI is available as a separate module.
