Abstract. In today’s research data management, experts discuss datasets to be FAIR, as they should become findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (Lacagnia et al. 2021). In recent years, quality information and provenance information as well as dataset’s general metadata have become important aspects to evaluate a dataset's fitness for use. In order to capture and process this meta-information in a systematic way, users need frameworks and meaningful user interfaces that allow them to interact with the information and to visualize them. Therefore, we provide a user-friendly and interactive geodashboard implementation as first prototype that supports the evaluation of spatial datasets with linked widgets by applying semantic concepts and using open source libraries.
