A presentation was given about Cloud Computing and Geoprocessing at this years “Internet & GIS” seminar at the University of Armed Forces in Munich. It turned out, that another speaker (Phillip Winkelmann from the University of Armed Forces) gave a presentation about “Automated Evaluation of OGC compliant Sensor Services”, where he combined a 52°North SOS with a 52°North WPS hosted by the University of Darmstadt to interpolat real time data. The results were stored directly in a WMS. Quite impressive to see complete service orientation with some of our technology in use.
Ever been confronted with the problem, that you have a nice OpenLayers client but no way to visualize datasets besides the already listed?
The 52°North OpenLayers extensions allows now the dynmically visualizing of OGC WFS datasets. Try a live demo here:
You can simply add a WFS URL and select the FeatureType to be displayed. Besides, with the WPS extension in the same client, you can also process the data.
This a major step forward towards a real WEB GIS.
