Linked Open Data (LOD) is a set of best practices for publishing raw data on the Web. It makes your data highly structured and very easy to incorporate with the other datasets.

The enviroCar platform has a large and varied amount of data describing different entities and can currently be served as Linked Open Data with a detailed API reference here. There are many entities involved, such as cars, people, speed, dates and so on. If these entities are served as Linked Open Data, they can be very easily connected to datasets which describe them, such as DBpedia.

enviroCar – Social Driving Stats

One of the Google Summer of Code 2015 projects offered by 52°North is “Social Driving Stats”. It is a sub project related to 52°North’s enviroCar project. I will be working on this project under the mentoring of Dr.Christoph Stasch and Matthes Rieke. enviroCar offers a citizen science platform for collecting, analyzing, sharing and discussing car sensor data. Sharing specific tracks or statistics is currently not possible with enviroCar. The Social Driving Stats project aims to enhance the enviroCar with sharing facilities and social media links by implementing a REST interface for creating and providing track visualizations and statistics. Furthermore, enviroCar should be linked to social networks, such as Google Plus, Facebook or Twitter. Therefore, this project will utilize the APIs of these platforms and integrate them within the user profile pages of enviroCar.

I would like to introduce the “WPS-Ilwis Bridge” Google Summer of Code 2015 project, hosted by 52°North.
The 52°North WPS currently supports different backends, like R or GRASS. The goal of this project is to extend its functionality by adding Ilwis Objects as a processing backend.
