  • Service-Oriented Architecture for the Geoprocessing Web
  • Geoprocessing in the Grid and in the Cloud computing
  • Geoprocessing and Linked data
  • Standards and Metadata for Geoprocessing
  • Discovery in the Geoprocessing Web
  • Quality of Service and Service Level Agreement in the Geoprocessing Web
  • Geoprocessing Web and the Model Web
  • Geospatial e-Science Workflow

Video SOS Documentation Page

Find a new documentation site on the 52°North wiki describing the Video on Demand SOS (VOD). It is embedded as an alternative implementation of a Sensor Observation Service (SOS).

Due to heavy re-factoring and change in the architectural concept of the VOD this site describes the current status of development. However, how-to and installation description are still lacking, but will follow as soon as possible.

Combination of 52°North Sensor Web and Geoprocessing technology

A presentation was given about Cloud Computing and Geoprocessing at this years “Internet & GIS” seminar at the University of Armed Forces in Munich. It turned out, that another speaker (Phillip Winkelmann from the University of Armed Forces) gave a presentation about “Automated Evaluation of OGC compliant Sensor Services”, where he combined a 52°North SOS with a 52°North WPS hosted by the University of Darmstadt to interpolat real time data. The results were stored directly in a WMS. Quite impressive to see  complete service orientation with some of our technology in use.

52°North OpenLayers Client with dynamic WFS Support

Ever been confronted with the problem, that you have a nice OpenLayers client but no way to visualize datasets besides the already listed?

The 52°North OpenLayers extensions allows now the dynmically visualizing of OGC WFS datasets. Try a live demo here:

You can simply add a WFS URL and select the FeatureType to be displayed. Besides, with the WPS extension in the same client, you can also process the data.

This a major step forward towards a real WEB GIS.
