My experience with the GSoC 2017 project “Simple Features for Protobuf and others” came to an end by presenting my results at the Geospatial Sensor Webs Conference 2017. It was really pleasing to see that a majority of the audience was really interested in the project outcome and eager to see it progress in the future.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.
