The 52°North Open Innovation Network announces an Invitation and Call for Presentations for the Geospatial Sensor Webs Conference 2017, which takes place from August 28 – 30, 2017 in Münster. Sensor Web researchers and practitioners are invited to present and discuss their ideas, use cases and solutions.
The 52°North Initiative currently organizes its 2nd conference on geospatial sensor webs. It will address various aspects regarding the challenges of turning data into information in the Sensor Web. The conference will be held in conjunction with the 5th Annual Sensor Web Workshop.
What: Geospatial Sensor Webs Conference 2017 – from data to information in the Sensor Web
When: August 28 – 30, 2017
Where: Münster, Germany
GIS Talk 2016 takes place from October 25 – 26, 2016 in Munich. Experts, users and decision makers meet to present and discuss the solutions GIS offers for IoT, Smart Cities, Industrie 4.0, Digitalisation and Open Data. 52°North’s Dr. Simon Jirka presents Sensor Web use cases in the forum “Natur, Environment and Resources“. The conference is in German.
October 25, 2016 13:00 – 17:00
“Sensor Web – Hydrological, Oceanographic and Environmental Monitoring Use Cases” (Sensor Web – Anwendungsbeispiele aus Hydrologie, Ozeanografie und Umweltmonitoring): Dr. Simon Jirka
Abstract: Sensor Web technology’s capability to enable the interoperable exchange of measurement data increases steadily. In addition to the plug-and-play connection of sensors, archives of measurement data can be accessed via Sensor Web interfaces. Dr. Jirka presents typcial use cases for Sensor Web components in various contexts. The examples cover hydrological applications, marine sensor systems and the delivery of air quality data to the European Environment Agency (EEA).
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2016 takes place from April 17 – 22, 2016 in Vienna, Austria. Geoscientists from all over the world come to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
