52°North has successfully participated as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code for the eighth year in a row. Two students worked with us over the summer and helped improve the enviroCar UI / UX and create a WPS for ArcGIS Pro. This year’s Mentor Summit took place in Munich, Germany.
The end of the 2019 GSoC program came to an end quite fast, but on the other hand, it just kicked off the development of the .NET WPS API and ArcGIS Pro Add-In. I’ll introduce you to what has been done so far, what we might expect from future contributors and my personal thoughts on this.
This GSoC 2019 project has the goal to develop a Web front end to create, read, update and delete (CRUD) JSON settings for OGC services. In addition, a REST API will be developed on top of the Faroe API. The UI should be easily extensible and customizable, e.g. with customer logos.
In this 2019 GSoC project we will implement a Web Processing Service (WPS) client for ArcGIS Pro. It will consist of two components: (1) a Microsoft .NET based library, (2) an ArcGIS Pro Add-In. The client will help ArcGIS Pro users to easily communicate with service instances through a user interface in the ArcGIS Pro look-and-feel.
