What does a Romanesco broccoli have to do with math? The same that GIS has to do with geoinformatics. Along the lines “Geoinformatics is everywhere”, the Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) searches for hidden potential fields of application for Geoinformatics. Discover what things in your surroundings have to do with Geoinformatics, take a picture and send it in: !

Here an impression from our 52°North booth at the INTERGEO fair which has taken place in Hannover during the past days. As you can see, we presented our work in the fields of Sensor Web, Web Processing, and also Linked Data and the Web of Things. We have met a lot of interesting contacts and received good feedback! Thanks to all who helped with the demonstrations and the organization!

Post-Doc/PhD postions available at ifgi

The Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) is looking for highly motivated candidates to fill two positions, one at the post-doc level and one at the PhD student level. Both positions are fully funded by the Linked Data for eScience Services (LIFE) project – a two-year project funded by the German Research Foundation, jointly carried out by the Semantic Interoperability Lab (MUSIL) at ifgi and the University Library at the University of Münster.

If you are interested, please find more information here.

The application process is open until October 15, 2012 or until the positions are filled.

Full Streaming WPS: Near real-time Geoprocessing with WPS

As I mentioned in a previous post (please read it before continuing), I intended to extend the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Processing Service (WPS) enabling it to process continuous data streams, as well as to send intermediate results back to the client. These two capabilities are realized with Full Streaming WPS, a new approach that brings near real-time geoprocessing to WPS. In this post, the foundations of such an approach are given, as well as implementation details and pointers to public resources. It also includes a demo.
