52°North announces the AGILE pre-conference workshop "Event-based Dissemination and Processing of Geospatial Information". It will take place on May 9th, 2017. This full day workshop focuses on the potential of event-based architectures in geospatial applications (e.g. disaster management, environmental monitoring, or public security) and aims to set up a corresponding research agenda.
The 52°North Initiative currently organizes its 2nd conference on geospatial sensor webs. It will address various aspects regarding the challenges of turning data into information in the Sensor Web. The conference will be held in conjunction with the 5th Annual Sensor Web Workshop.
The "CargoWeakSpots" project wins the DB Cargo Data Category at last week's fifth DB Open Data Hackathon! A team of developers from 52°North, the Hochschule Bochum and Esri Germany competed in the DB Mindbox event in Berlin.
