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…)

The goal of this Google Summer of Code project is to extend the 52°North WPS‘s functionality by adding Ilwis-Objects as a processing backend. The 52°North  currently supports several different backends, such as R or GRASS. The introductory blog post can be found here.

The current status of the project can be seen in the following diagram.

Statistics for OGC Web services

Maintainers of 52°North web services currently have no information about the usage of their web services. User tracking is an important tool to understand user interest, requirements, and to ensure web services are working properly. But for OGC services, mere web usage statistics are not sufficient. They lack the thematic information. An administrator of a 52°North SOS does not know what the “most common” requested procedures are and when people are requesting data for which area and time frame. Are users mostly interested in the last week, or do they request historical data as well? Which sensor stations rarely get any queries?


WPS-Ilwis Bridge

I would like to introduce the “WPS-Ilwis Bridge” Google Summer of Code 2015 project, hosted by 52°North.
The 52°North WPS currently supports different backends, like R or GRASS. The goal of this project is to extend its functionality by adding Ilwis Objects as a processing backend.
