The FixO3 project has recently published the “Handbook of best practices for open ocean fixed observatories”. It describes optimal ways for users to implement fixed stations in an open ocean region. Download the handbook for free.
The enviroCar Newsletter provides information about current developments and activities. It is published on a regular basis.
The enviroCar project allows users to collect and share their driving statistics via an OBD sensor coupled with an Android app. A new SPA (Single Page Application) is now available online (http://pilot.52north.org/envirocar-ng/) as an amendment to the enviroCar project. It builds upon work done by Google’s Summer of Code student Naveen Jafer (please find a summary of his work on enviroCar visual analytcs here). Users are invited to test the SPA and to fill out a feedback form regarding issues or to share ideas. (more…)
The enviroCar project allows users to collect and share their driving statistics via an OBD sensor coupled with an Android app. The app collects car data and pushes the data to a server with a stateless REST API that exposes this data. The enviroCar project’s website, which is currently built in PHP, makes use of this API endpoint to provide a dashboard experience to a user for vehicular track analysis. The project’s objective is to rebuild the website as a SPA (Single Page Application) with the AngularJS framework. This could also serve as the starting point for the next generation website. The previous blog post contains the work done till the mid term of this project. The upcoming sections of this blog post discuss further work done and problems faced.

The 52°North Triturus library is extremely powerful and provides a lot of functionalities in the field of 3D geovisualization. This library is used in a lot of projects such as 52°North terrainServer and 52°North WorldViz. Currently, the terrainServer offers web-based services providing perspective terrain views. The project’s goal is to extend terrain model generation and analysis to practical scenarios in which it would be desirable to have web-based access to tools (e.g., difference surfaces, mass calculations, inclination analysis) and to model generation functions. These should use 52°North Triturus library. In the Google Summer of Code 2016 program, we shall try to achieve web-based access for some of these tools. This new module has been named ‘terrainTools’ and will be a standalone project. (more…)
