Time frame: 07/2015 - 01/2016
Description: The OGC Incident Management Information Sharing (IMIS) Internet of Things Pilot (IoT) Pilot – called IMIS IoT will prototype and demonstrate standards-based approaches to address a series of challenges that hinder effective use of large numbers of diverse sensors for use in emergency response and disaster response situations. Prototype capabilities will include ad hoc, nearly automatic deployment, discovery, and access to sensor information feeds, as well as derivation of actionable information in common formats for use in Computer Aided Dispatch, Emergency Operations Center, and GIS, as well as mobile devices.
Time frame: 02/2015 - 06/2015
Description: OGC OWS testbeds are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC's Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release. OWS 11 focuses on spatial communication requirements that emerge when a population is displaced due to coastal inundation. It builds on the outcomes of prior OGC testbeds and is organized around the following threads:
1. Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI),
2. Urban-Climate Resilience (UCR) and
3. Geospatial Enhancements for NIEM (Geo4NIEM).
Time frame: 09.2013 to 04.2014
Description: OGC OWS 10 testbeds are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC's Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release. The content of OWS 10 initiatives are organized around threads which include Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI), Open Mobility and Aviation.
52°North participates in the all three threads.
Global Assessment of Land Use Dynamics and Impacts on Ecosystem Services
Time Frame: 01.2010 - 12.2016
Description: GLUES is a consortium of project partners for the scientific coordination and synthesis of the BMBF "Sustainable Land Use Management" program. The project aims to support the international cross-disciplinary collaboration of research projects dealing with the issue of land use, greenhouse gas emissions and ecosystem services. 52°North participates in the development of a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) for scientific data, in particular in
Time frame: 02.2013 – 03.2013
Description: Delivery of a WebGen client, tested with the services available on the WebGen sever hosted by the University of Dresden. With this client it shall be possible to connect to WebGen WPS Server, select one or more processes, execute a process with selected features or layers available in ArcGIS, and add the results of the process as a new layer to ArcGIS.
