MYGEOSS Innovative User Feedback App

Time frame: 6/2015 - 8/2015

Website: n/a

Description: The MYGEOSS Feedback app aims to help GEOSS users find data and improve the quality of GEOSS datasets by allowing users to add quality information in the form of “in-situ” user feedback.  The main task is to build an innovative feedback application in the form of a mobile web page that can display resources from GEOSS and provide functionality to improve the data quality by adding feedback. The current GEO Feedback System will be extended with a single sign on system and an easy to use interface.

Description: Development of procedures for harvesting extreme events data from various sources to a spatial database, systematic detection of extreme meteorological events, and visualization of the extreme events dataset in an interactive web client. The software and libraries used in this project are: PostgreSQL/PostGIS, Quantum GIS, ExtJS, GeoExt, OpenLayers

Time frame: 08.2011 – 12.2011

Website: n/a

Description: The exisitingGIS-based data collection of extreme events should be extended and a Web application für visualizing the data set developed. The Web application should enable national wetter services to search the data set for specific events and make use of the information.

Uncertaintiy enabled model web

Time Frame: 02.2010 – 01.2013

Web Site:

Description: UncertWeb develops the science and technology to make the uncertainty enabled model web a reality.
