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?

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.
