A year after the release of 4.0, the Sensor Web community is pleased to announce the
52°North SOS 4.2 Release!
A downloadable zip archive of the release contains the sources, as well as the binaries. Release requirements, installation and configuration information are documented in the 52°North wiki.
OSGeo-Live 8.5 has been released! For this release, geospatial applications have been updated to their latest stable release. OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB flash drive and Virtual Machine based upon Ubuntu Linux (version 12.04 LTS). OSGeo-Live is pre-configured with a wide variety of robust open source geospatial software. All applications can be trialled without installing anything on your computer, simply by booting the computer from a DVD or USB drive, or running in a Virtual Machine environment. Each featured package is accompanied by both a publication quality one page descriptive summary and a short tutorial on how to get started using it. more >
Once again, 52°North has been chosen to be a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2015 (GSoC)! The Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. Stipend recipients receive $ 5.500,- for 3 months of successful software development for 52°North. A mentor from a 52°North partner organization supervises the student during this period.
As such, we now look for students who are interested in writing code for various 52°North projects. If you are interested in writing code for software developed by the 52°North communities, we have a number of interesing project ideas. Please have a look at https://wiki.52north.org/bin/view/Projects/GSoC2015.
Student Application opens on March 16, 2015 at 19:00 UTC – but the discussion can start right now!
This summer, flip bits not burgers with 52°North!
