Last week, Sensor Web enthusiasts met in Münster for a successful 2 day Sensor Web Workshop. Participants shared their versitile implementations of various 52°North’s components, such as SOS and Sensor Web Client.

52°North successfully completed its second participation in the Google Summer of Code. We are happy to announce that all four students did a really great job in their projects. Thanks to all participants – students and mentors alike! If you have been following the blogs over the course the summer/fall, you will have read about the particular projects previously.more >
The Sensor Web community has published a new beta release – “RC1″– of 52°North’s implementation of the OGC SOS 2.0 standard. The new SOS 4.0.0 contains improved components and new functionality. more >
Greetings Sensor Web Community,
My name is Christian Danowski and I plan to finish my Bachelor degree in geoinformatics at the University of Applied Sciences Bochum in February next year. Prior to the Bachelor thesis, I had the great opportunity to experience a twelve week internship at 52°North (52N). I intend to share my experience with you in this blog article.
During the internship, my task was to develop a new data source component for the 52N Sensor Observation Service (SOS) within the context of the European Project GEOWOW. The idea was to use a file system of NetCDF files as a data source instead of a database. Hence the necessary information provided to the SOS is not stored inside a database like PostGIS anymore, but in the NetCDF files itself. In the following paragraphs I will try to briefly explain the background of NetCDF and the steps of the development process.
