The Professorship of Geoinformation Systems is an interdisciplinary institution at the Department of Geosciences of the Technische Universität Dresden. Prof. Dr. Lars Bernard and his team focus on various R&D topics within Geoinformation Science. The current scientific activities target the design, development and establishment of geoinformation services for spatio-temporal modeling.


The INTERGEO conference and trade fair is the world’s largest event for geodesy, geoinformation and land management. From September 27th through 29th, suppliers, practitioners and researchers from all over the world gather in Nuremberg to present and discuss current technological trends and practical developments. 52°North - an international Research and Development Network of partners from research, industry and public administration - is an excellent address to emphasize the value of new technologies in the form of innovative solutions in practice.


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.


RR2011, the fifth International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems, recently took place at the Digital Research Enterprise Institute (DERI) in Galway, Ireland. 52°North helped to sponsor this interesting event. While the conference is devoted to all aspects of Semantic Web Reasoning, it emphasizes rule-based approaches. In addition to theoretical contributions, it also welcomes practical works such as reports on tools & systems and rules and reasoning driven applications. Stream reasoning for the Semantic Sensor Web, as well as the integration of statistical methods and symbolic reasoning were of particular interest to the 52°North community.
