GIS data access for enviroCar

July 8th, 2014 @ 08:07 by DanielNuest
Posted in Citizen Science

The enviroCar Team recently built a new platform for managing transportation data in the form of “tracks”. A simple but extensible JSON encoding supports the quick prototyping approach within the architecture of the data server, Android app for data collection, and PHP-based website for visualization and social interaction. As the project matures, we encounter new requirements. One of these is to enable users to download the track data in formats that simplify data import to other tools, such as mapping software (e.g. ArcGIS) or tabular analysis software (e.g. Excel spreadsheets), so that scientists and citizens alike can derive new findings and develop new information products based on the enviroCar data.

No sooner said than done, we developed and now publicly release two new export formats, shapefile and CSV! (more…)

enviroCar UX Design- Mid Term Blog Post

As mentioned in my previous blog post, this project aims to add some new features to the enviroCar Android application. The app already contains features which display a car’s CO2 emission and speed. So in the first phase of my summer of code, I focused on modifying the existing dashboard and localization. (more…)

This ILWIS Mobile project is one of the Google Summer of Code projects hosted by 52°North. The project was introduced in an introductory blog. In this blog I will give a little update. I spent the first month following courses for my studies and got acquainted with the tools (Qt with QML/Java Script and C++) and the project. In the second part of the project (July and August), I will carry out the actual realization, which will culminate in the Gatherer app. I will elaborate on both. (more…)

Sensor Data Access for Rasdaman – Mid Term Blog Post

The first goal for the Sensor Data Access for Rasdaman project was to implement a JDBC driver for Rasdaman and to create a Hibernate dialect, which uses the JDBC driver to connect Rasdaman as a data storage backend to the 52°North Sensor Observation Service (SOS). This was the solution we came up with for the first part and we think this was a good choice, because now, at the mid term evaluation, we have a JDBC driver and a Hibernate dialect – both of which support multidimensional array queries.

Even though I will summarize the project’s status, you can find a more detailed description about the project’s evolution on the Sensor Data Access for Rasdaman wiki page.

The project’s aim is to define rules to restrict access to SOS contents on the operation and parameter level. An introduction to the project can be found in the previous blog post. This goal is achieved with a nice graphical user interface to enable the admin user to manage permissions for a particular enforcement point, which is the connection point for the client instead of the original SOS endpoint.
