The Simple Feature Access Specification is a common standard that is widely used in geoinformatics for exchanging spatial features. It defines a common storage and access model for spatial vector geometries used by geographic information systems. Efficient serialization of this spatial data is a vital requirement in Spatial Data Infrastructures and Geoprocessing applications. (more…)

Last week, the OGC kicked off the Aviation thread of Testbed 12 as part of its interoperability program. 52°North will participate as one of six partners, working on prototyping and evaluating the next generation of Aviation Air Traffic Management.

The Harris Corporation hosted the meeting, in which many fruitful discussions on the upcoming tasks took place. 52°North will focus its work on asynchronous message exchange of aeronautical data using JMS and AMQP 1.0, with a special focus on geo-spatial filtering.


The Aviation thread is sponsored by EUROCONTROL and the Federal Aviation Administration.

In addition to 52°North, the following partners participate in the OGC Testbed 12 Aviation thread: Galdos Systems Inc., Harris Corporation, Luciad,, Snowflake Software and MIT Lincoln Laboratory (as supporting consultants).

The goal of this Google Summer of Code project was to create a bridge between Ilwis-objects and the 52°North WPS by adding Ilwis-objects as a processing backend. With this WPS extension, users can carry out ILWIS commands on a remote server via the WPS service interface.

SPARQL endpoint and interoperability of the enviroCar Linked Data – Final Blog Post

With only a few days left, the enviroCar SPARQL endpoint comes closer than ever to becoming reality. Much work and research has been put into an immensely important segment of the 52°North  enviroCar project – the data. This project involves all kinds of data from standard relational to semi-structured to geo-spatial, which makes it both versatile and extendible. In a nutshell, we extract enviroCar’s data from its database form, convert it to the Linked Data format, store it in a triple store and serve it to the world as an Endpoint. Have a look at how different data looks when represented in different formats! (more…)
