Route Planning in your Database with pgRouting

pgRouting extends the PostGIS / PostgreSQL geospatial database to provide shortest path search and other network analysis functionality. This presentation will show the inside and current state of the pgRouting development, from its wide range of shortest path search algorithms to driving distance calculation or Traveling Sales Person (TSP) optimization. Additionally we will give a brief outlook and introduction of upcoming new features like the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) solver, and what we have in mind for future releases. We will explain the shortest path search in real road networks and how the data structure is important to get better routing results. Furthermore we will show how you can improve the quality of the search with dynamic costs and make the result look closer to the reality. You will also learn about difficulties and limitations of the library, and when pgRouting might not be not the right tool to solve your routing problem.

OpenAerialMap: A Distributed Commons for Searching and Hosting Free Imagery

Aerial imagery is a core base of many mapping related projects. With the increase in the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), lower cost satellites and more generally openly licensed imagery, there is a need for one place to search and access that imagery. This is a big undertaking, and certainly can't be left in the hands of a single company or organization. OpenAerialMap (OAM) addresses these issues with transparency and open access. A project for 10 years, OAM has been relaunched as of 2014. Now under active development, a dedicated open-source community is emerging. This presentation will cover the following topics: * The general architecture of OAM * How to contribute data directly to the system or by hosting your own node * The future road map and how volunteers can contribute

COBWEB, a citizen science data collection platform.

COBWEB is a European Union FP7 funded citizen science project that has produced a platform through which citizens living within Biosphere Reserves will be able to collect environmental data using mobile devices. Part of the infrastructure are a COBWEB mobile app, the survey designer and the Personal Cloud API (PCAPI) middleware. The survey designer is a GUI editor for generating custom forms, which can be downloaded onto the app, together with a map interface for viewing data captured in the field and a mechanism for exporting user data to CSV, KML and GeoJSON. The COBWEB app has been generated on the foundations of Fieldtrip Open, which is a modular plug-in framework to enable developers to write their own extensions and re-use plugins written by others. This framework has been used in the creation of other production strength apps e.g. the FieldtripGB, FieldtripOSM. The framework is based on Cordova framework and can be compiled to Android and iOS and potentially all other platforms targeted by Cordova. Plugins have already been written for capturing GPS tracks, geocoding, caching off-line maps, creating Geo-Fences, overlaying layers in MBTiles and KML Format, extending the records with sensor data, making decision tree questionnaires and syncing data on the cloud. The synching functionality is the one that allows user to download their custom forms to their devices and layers and upload their captured data to their personal cloud space. Finally, PCAPI is a middle-ware which abstracts storage to cloud providers e.g. Dropbox or a local File system. All the software is (modified) BSD-licensed.

Jsonix: Talking to OGC Web Services in JSON

Can you talk to OGC Web Services in JSON instead of XML? You can - with Jsonix, a powerful JavaScript tool for XML - JSON conversion. JSON has probably already replaced XML as a "lingua franca". JSON is much lighter and easier to use than XML, especially in JavaScript-based web apps. In the context of GIS, web mapping is dominated by JavaScript libraries like OpenLayers and Leaflet, which speak JSON natively. But what about the standards? Open Geospatial Consortium defines more than 50 specifications with more than 100 individual versions. Technically almost all of them are XML-based and defined by XML schemas. These are de jure and de facto standards, widely used and well supported. So you still need XML processing in JS web mapping apps. Processing XML is no rocket science, but it's seldom a pleasure to implement. The OL3 KML parser is about 2.5KLoc of dense XML parsing. Even a very simple WMS GetCapabilities format is almost 1 KLOC. From this code around 90% is pure XML parsing and only 10% is the processing of the payload. Would not it be nice if we could talk to the OGC Web Services directly in JSON? So that the developers could focus on the 10%, the payload processing, and cut off the 90% (XML handling) of the effort. Jsonix is an open source library for XML - JS conversion which makes it just possible. With Jsonix you can take an XML Schema and generate XML - JS mappings. These mappings allow you to parse XML in the original schema and get your data in pretty JSON. It also works in the opposite direction: you can serialize JSON in XML, which would correspond to the original XML Schema. What makes Jsonix unique is that it is type and structure-safe. On the JSON side, you will get types and structures exactly as they are defined in the original XML Schema. For instance, xs:decimal is converted into a number in number in JSON, repeatable elements are represented by arrays etc. You just need the corresponding mapping. You can generate Jsonix mappings on your own or use one of the pre-generated mappings. The (unofficial) OGC Schemas Project compiles and provides mappings for many of the popular OGC schemas (OWS, WMS, WFS, CSW, SLD and many more). This presentation gives an overview of Jsonix demonstrates its usage by a number of examples.

Geopaparazzi, state of the art

Geopaparazzi is an application for fast field surveys. Its simplicity and the possibility to use it on as good as any android smartphone makes it a trusty field companion for engineers and geologists, but also for tourists who wish to keep a geodiary and any user that needs to be aware of his position even in offline mode. In Geopaparazzi it is possible to create text, picture and sketch notes and place them on the map. Notes can also be complex and form based in order to standardize surveys in which many people need to be coordinated. In the last years the support for the visualization of spatialite vector layers and recently also editing possibilities for spatialite poligonal datasets has been added, allowing for some simple-yet-powerfull possibilities on vector data. Desktop tools are supplied to bring datasets from the GIS environment to Geopaparazzi and back. The presentation will focus on the most important features of Geopaparazzi as well as the latest additions to the application in order to give a complete idea of the state of the art of the project.

Landmark Based Path Planning with a Linear Map Display For Mobile Map Applications

Landmarks are yet to be integrated with mainstream mobile phone based navigation aids. In geographical regions where land marks are commonly used by the community for navigation support, the lack of them in electronic navigation aids make them less useful for such communities. In this study a land marks based navigation model is derived considering the value of them for local community in Sri Lanka. The landmarks can be prominent or not, make sense only during certain time of the day or been important differently for people with different age groups. We assume that the attributes of landmarks can be used to give a strength value for them for navigation. In this study three parameters, the visibility of them at different time of the day, the horizontal spread of the landmark and the height of them are considered as attributes which gives strength to a landmark. First, to give more importance to landmarks, we have developed an algorithm where not only the distance of a route but the strength of landmarks is also considered when selecting the best route to navigate. The A* Algorithm is used as the base which output possible shortest paths considering only the distance. This algorithm was enhanced to output the optimum paths considering both the distance and the strength of landmarks along it. If the route is having more strength related to landmarks, it is prioritized. The route��s strength is defined based on number of landmarks visible along it and the strength of them. In order to calculate the number of landmarks along a route a landmark buffer is used. The day/night visibility and the height/spread are used to calculate the strength of the landmarks along the route. We have identified that after placing landmarks on a mobile screen which have limited size, the map become too congested and it becomes difficult to read the navigation path. This is more prominent when the path is having many turns. Therefore, secondly, to utilize the limited mobile screen in more effective manner, we reduce the selected path to a linear map which shows the path reducing curves but emphasising the turns by markers. The linear map shows landmarks around significant turns and provides guidance based on landmarks. The turn confirmations are calculated based on landmarks. Douglas-Peucker algorithm is used to derive the linear path and is enhanced to identify turns and show the landmarks around those turns. A prototype implementation is done using mobile web approach to reduce the platform dependency. In the simple mobile web application developed, jQuery mobile, and php are used for the user interface development and server side implementations respectively. PostgreSQL with postGIS capabilities and pgRouting is used as a spatial database. Web services and smart queries are used to implement the basic functionality communicating with the spatial database and the front end. The application is still being implemented and tested in Sri Lanka at the moment and the outcome would be reported in due course.

Satellite Snow Cover Products Evaluation and Validation Platform Developed Entirely With Floss Software

The monitoring of snow cover extent is important for the management of natural resource, extreme events prediction such as snowmelt floods, avalanches etc. The current status is that the network of weather stations is too sparse in regions with seasonal snow cover to provide reliable snow monitoring and impact applications. Remote sensing can regularly provide maps of snow cover extent, under limitations imposed by satellite cycles or cloud cover. A number of daily or synthesis snow cover extent products, covering Romania, with different resolutions and specifications, are available for free (e.g. GLOBSNOW, CryoLand, H-SAF, IMS). These products were homogenized and included, along with reference and in-situ data, into an application that make possible for user to inspect, process, analyze and validate the information, using a web based interface. The platform, created by National Meteorological Administration of Romania offers services based on Open Geospatial Consortium standards for data retrieval (WMS, WCS, WFS) and server-side processing (WPS, WCPS). The services were built upon open source solutions such as GeoServer, OpenLayers, GeoExt, PostgreSQL, GDAL, rasdaman. The application is composed of several software modules/services. The modules are split into two categories: server-side modules/services and client side modules - responsible for interaction with the user. A typical usage scenario assumes the following steps: 1. The user is operating the client functionality to select a temporal and spatial slice from a product cube (e.g. 5 months archive of daily CryoLand FSC data); 2. The users select a statistic method to be applied; 3. The request is sent to the server side processing applications wrapped as WPS or WCPS calls; 4. The process will trim/slice the coverage cube, perform the statistic operation for the pixels within the ROI for each day in the selected time interval; 5. The results are sent back encoded in a standard file format; 6. The web client display the results in a relevant form.
