The goal of this Google Summer of Code project was to create a bridge between Ilwis-objects and the 52°North WPS by adding Ilwis-objects as a processing backend. With this WPS extension, users can carry out ILWIS commands on a remote server via the WPS service interface.

The collection of driving data using the mobile application for enviroCar requires a number of manual user interactions. This is unpleasant and tedious over the long run and poses a major obstacle for using the app regularly. To tackle these problems, the enviroCar light project aims to enhance the usability of the enviroCar application by improving the general appearance and by simplifying the workflow of collecting driving data to achieve more user contributions.

SPARQL endpoint and interoperability of the enviroCar Linked Data – Final Blog Post

With only a few days left, the enviroCar SPARQL endpoint comes closer than ever to becoming reality. Much work and research has been put into an immensely important segment of the 52°North  enviroCar project – the data. This project involves all kinds of data from standard relational to semi-structured to geo-spatial, which makes it both versatile and extendible. In a nutshell, we extract enviroCar’s data from its database form, convert it to the Linked Data format, store it in a triple store and serve it to the world as an Endpoint. Have a look at how different data looks when represented in different formats!

Last week I talked a little bit about the changes in the data structures. This week I want to show a little bit about the changes in the desktop client’s user interface (UI). When designing the UI, I tried to stay close to the general principle of the ILWIS 3 UI on the one hand, and to modernize and improve those parts that needed improvement on the other hand. (more…)

The project goal is to collect statistics about how the clients use their SOS (Sensor Observation Service) deployments. The data is collected in an Elasticsearch database. If you would like to read more about this proposition, please read the project’s first blog post. You can read about the performance and a couple of design decisions in the second blog post.
