52°North GmbH supported the ifgi summer school hackathon with drinks, sandwiches and snacks, providing energy and fueling creativity.
The Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) in Muenster recently celebrated its 20th birthday. As part of the celebrations, ifgi held a five day summer school around the topic “Gamifying Spatial Collaboration”. Students from all over the world met to learn about and discuss location-based gaming and spatial collaboration. A major highlight was the hackathon, in which the students developed a concept for a location-based in-car game. Refreshments from 52°North helped provide energy and fuel creativity.
When the INSPIRE Conference 2014 opens its doors next week, 52°North and JRC will propose a way to extend the INSPIRE Technical Guidelines for Download Services to include the OGC SOS interface. An open source implementation of the specification is currently in the making - the 52°North SOS 4.X. Dr. Simon Jirka will present this as an INSPIRE Download Service and explain how to implement SOS based sharing of observation data.
