FOSS4G-EIt has been a while since this year’s FOSS4G-Europe conference took place in Bremen; however, we would like to share our presentations and experiences in this blog post. Three members of 52°North staff attended the FOSS4G-E, which was conveniently located in the nearby city of Bremen, and talked about diverse topics involving INSPIRE, the WPS standard, collaborative software development, teaching, JavaScript, and more.

enviroCar UX Design – Final Blog

This is my final blog post regarding my work on Google Summer Of Code 2014 for the enviroCar Android app.

A short introduction

EnviroCar connects to your car with the help of an OBD II adapter and records important data, such as CO2 emission, fuel consumption, engine load, etc. It helps a user record, learn about and potentially improve his or her driving characteristics. Additionally, the data from all enviroCar users is published as open data. Therefore the data for a particular city or area can be analyzed with respect to CO2 hot spots, traffic flow, and other driving statistics. More details about the app can be found in my first and mid-term blog posts. Here are other resources which track my development in the project:

My GSoC project in 2014 is split into two important parts to better track the project’s evolution and for easier task management. For “Sensor Data Access for Rasdaman”, the two parts of the project were significantly different but aimed at the same result: to integrate Rasdaman as a data storage backend to the 52°North Sensor Observation Service (SOS) implementation. The evolution and results of the first part of the Sensor Data Access for Rasdaman project were presented in the mid-term blog post and on the project’s wiki page. The content of the wiki page contains all the weekly reports, not only the ones corresponding to the first seven weeks. This final blog post gives a brief presentation of the results of this last GSoC phase, but also provides all the resources for the project’s installation and describes some of the problems met along the way.

This is the final blog post of the GSoC project ILWIS Mobile. The project has been introduced in this blogpost.  The first period has been used to get acquainted with the tools and the programming languages and the second half to code the app.

The Gatherer app was a project of the Google Summer of Code 2014 hosted by 52°North. Rob Lemmens, Martin Schouwenburg and Bas Retsios ( ITC Enschede ) are members of 52°North’s ILWIS community and mentored this project.

The aim of this project is to provide administrators with a graphical user interface – the permissions editor – to restrict features and data access to an SOS instance for the defined user roles.  During the second half of the project we mainly worked on the user stories and focussed on providing additional functionalities and improving the process of creating permission sets and permissions.  The previous blog post contains the work conducted during the first half of the project, after which all the basic user stories were in place. Below are the resources for the project which track the status and work done:
