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.
The project I shall be working on during the GSoC period is the enviroCar Android project. This application collects data from an OBD II adapter that can be installed in automobiles. It communicates with the adapter through Bluetooth and stores data for each of the user’s tracks. This includes, but is not limited to, the speed of the car, its GPS location, the RPM, the data from the O2 sensors and the fuel consumption.
My goal is to improve the current user interface and the user experience, to make it more streamlined and fix a few issues that I have noticed while using the application. I believe that these changes can greatly improve user experience and user retention. more >
