Add image attribute to Dataset and Group

Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)

Add image attribute for Dataset and Group which would be shown in prominent place.

For dataset this could be a relevant image and for Group this would be more of a logo.

I think this has very high value from a UX point of view.


  • Do we need to support uploading and storing the image (or do users store elsewhere)
    • Could use something like transloadit service
    • Use our own storage facility with a reserved directory
  • Do we need to do resizing etc?
    • Maybe. Perhaps can prefer this in reasonably small size and then just size down in css for thumbnails etc.

CMAP are really keen on having this for groups

CMAP also interested in having some custom CSS for a group, but that is perhaps another ticket.

Image URL attribute added to groups (http://trac.ckan.org/ticket/2275). Won't add a similar attribute to dataset at present. Another option is to display the group image on dataset page.
