The collection of driving data using the mobile application for enviroCar requires a number of manual user interactions. This is unpleasant and tedious over the long run and poses a major obstacle for using the app regularly. To tackle these problems, the enviroCar light project aims to enhance the usability of the enviroCar application by improving the general appearance and by simplifying the workflow of collecting driving data
to achieve more user contributions.
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 >
