smle /ˈsmaɪ.li/ is one of 52°North’s new developments. It is based on TypeScript and Angular 2 and enables web-based editing of SensorML descriptions. The implementation of this editor  started earlier this year within the context of the projects NeXOS and FixO3. The idea of the Google Summer of Code activity is to enrich the editor with further functionality and to improve the usability in some aspects. (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).

I completed my external semester at 52°North on October 2, 2015. During this internship, my task was to gain experience in software development by developing a metadata editor for standarized sensor metadata. Please see my initial blog post for more information. I fulfilled this task by implementing an editor based on the smartEditor project and built a prototype which enables the editing of the metadata language SensorML. This prototype is called SmartSensorEditor. Currently, this editor supports several elements of the SensorML description language. (more…)
