Do you have data, casts, and services that you want to publish and advertise? Libre created Web-based tools to help you publish, advertise, and share your data, casts, and services easily and free.
The Libre project created the Collection Caster Web-based tool to help you create Atom feeds and share them with the scientific community. Collection casting is a process that helps you advertise your data sets so users and computers on the internet discover your data quickly and more efficiently. Collection casting uses Atom technology, which means that your Collection Cast or feed can be viewed with any desktop or browser-based feed reader.
You can automate the features of the Collection Caster Tool for all your data by using the Collection Caster Application Programming Interface (API).
