52°North participates in the Observation Fusion Thread of the OGC OWS 8 testbed. This Thread covers

  • WCS 2.0 Earth Observation Application Profile, WCPS, Compliance Test Scripts
  • Detection, tracking, and bookmarking of moving objects in video, implemented using SWE and other OGC encodings and interfaces.

At the recent Kickoff meeting, held in Washington DC from March 9 – 11, 2011, it was decided that the 52°North WPS will be the basis for developing a Web Processing Service tailored to Earth Observation needs. This will also include implementing a Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS) extension. Results are expected in the fall.

At the most recent OGC TC meeting held in Bonn, 52°North partners shared their expertise in the Sensor Web Enablement, Geoprocessing, Workflow and other related Working Groups, thus contributing to the further development of interoperable standards for SDIs.


52°North's Sensor Web Community has just published a comprehensive review of the current design of "SWE 2.0" in the Sensors, Volume 11, Issue 3. Much of the work reviewed has been developed within the OGC SWE Working Group, in which our partners have actively contributed their expertise over the last few years, and implemented by the Sensor Web Community.

Innovation in use -
Idea – concept – implementation - application

52°North Student Innovation Prize for Geoinformatics

Innovation is a driving force for the development of our economy. Innovation is based on innovative ideas, on applicable and implementable concepts, generating new technologies and applications. However, a novel idea becomes an innovation only if it meets certain demands and unfolds its use in practice.

The 52°North Student Innovation Prize encourages students to contribute to innovation in the field of Geoinformatics. The prize will acknowledge and financially reward outstanding innovative and trendsetting concepts and announce them to a greater audience.
