Two Degrees to SensorWeb 2

Posted by Patrice Cappelaere Thu, 08 Jan 2009 02:55:00 GMT

For SensorWeb to be relevant, we believe that any of its data and assets can be no further away than two degress of separation from anyone in the world. This does assume that those users would be from trusted domains and would have been granted the proper permissions from their organizations.  We are coining this our SWE "Bacon" number or Two.  So, you are doing SWE?  What is your Bacon number?

San Diego Wild Fires

Posted by Patrice Cappelaere Wed, 24 Oct 2007 00:22:00 GMT

NASA support has been requested in for a state of emergency so we are all trying to help as we can. We have modified our GEOSS workflows to monitor the situation in the San Diego area. Fire threats are being detected based on MODIS data and EO-1 is being tasked twice a day to image the area.

RESTful workflows implemented using OpenWFERu are being used to process the imagery to deliver the data to the first responders. First thermal imagery processed onboard the satellite has been downlinked and is available on http://eo1.geobliki.com. Higher resolution data will be available as soon as possible.

As more than 500,000 people are being evacuated and many are loosing their homes, our prayers and thoughts are with you.

A WFS-Basic as a Geo-Atom Store 1

Posted by Patrice Cappelaere Mon, 06 Aug 2007 01:45:00 GMT

Here is the plan for a demo:

A Web Feature Server (WFS) in its basic incantation is really a store of geospatial collections that can be accessed using RESTful services.

Building Web Services the REST way has been a very hot topic in the Rails Community.

Rails 1.2 can quickly allow you to build such services and return xml or html on-demand. JSON or [Geo]-rss/atom could be returned as easily in a similar manner.

The idea here is to return a GeoAtom Feed that could follow a similar structure as GData with a namespace specific to that WFS and an additional extension for the geospatial component.

Discovering the meta-data should be feasible using a meta-data feed and probing a specific url.

This would give us many services to access the various collections and the meta-data. The whole package could be described using a service document as proposed in the Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) that would describe all the available services. This document itself would be available at a specific url.

Searching the WFS would be done via OpenSearch-Geo which is another REST service returning atom or KML feeds.

The goal is to implement this for the upcoming ESTO/AIST Fire Management demo this summer and support the GEOSS Pilot effort this fall. This is also in line with our participation into the OWS-5 Agile Geography testbed.
