52N expertise was in demand at the most recent OGC Technical committee Meeting. Presentations of 52N software implementations and research topics in the Domain and Standards Working Groups helped to further the standardization process.


Dr. Ingo Simonis, former 52°North Sensor Web Community Lead received the Gardels Award by the Open Geospatial Consortium for his outstanding dedication and contributions for the Sensor Web Enablement standardization at OGC. Ingo was one of the founding members of the 52°North Initiative and of the Sensor Web Community. He successfully integrated work on SWE within the initiative into the OGC standardization process. The Gardels Award is presented each year to an individual that made exceptional contributions.


This year's winners of the 52°North Student Innovation Prize for Geoinformatics 2010 present the results of their work. Daniel Nüst (Institute for Geoinformatics, Uni Muenster, Germany) presents "sos4R – Accessing a Sensor Observation Service from R”. Alexander McKeown and James McHugh from the Commonwealth Scientific and Research Organization (CSIRO) ICT Centre in Tasmania, Australia present “Developing an SOS Client for Use by the General Public”.


The INTERGEO conference and trade fair is the world’s largest event for geodesy, geoinformation and land management. From October 5th through 7th, suppliers, practitioners and researchers from all over the world gather in Cologne to present and discuss the state of play in this field of work. Since this event is not an academic forum, but a platform for industry and practitioners, 52°North introduces ready to use innovative solutions.
