The free and open source software world currently meets at this year's FOSS4G in Denver Colorado to present the latest developments and discuss the current status of open source software solutions. The past few years have shown a trend towards the implementation of a mixture of open and closed source solutions. At the 52°North booth, we present our contributions to this trend along with our developments in the Sensor Web Enablement realm.
The Geoprocessing Community presents
- A newly developed ArcMap WPS Client enables esri users to integrate closed und open source software. 52°North demonstrates how external processes (for example R) can be executed within esri products.
- The OSM2NetworkDataset application converts OSM data to ArcGIS transportation networks. ArcGIS users now can use free OpenStreetMap (OSM) geodata to perform network analyses with the Network Analyst extension.
- Various WPS backends for open and closed source environments, such as GRASS und ArcGIS, are also demonstrated.
The Sensor Web Community presents
- Visualization of time series data with the 52N SWE Client 2.0. This light weight client with a user-friendly interface enables users to visually explore and use sensor data, e.g. in meteorology and hydrology.
- Sensor data available as Linked Data with the RESTful SOS proxy. This transparent and RESTful SOS proxy serves Linked Sensor Data without any modifications to existing OGC services and exiting SDI deployments.
- The 52N SOS 2.0. This is our implementation of the OGC Sensor Observation Service 2.0 Specification and enables the integration of live sensor data into Spatial Data Infrastructures.
