FOSSGIS 21.-24. März 2018: deutsch-sprachige Konferenz über Open Source, Open (Geo-)Data und Open Standards

Ziel der jährlich stattfindenden Konferenz ist die Verbreitung von Freier und Open Source Software für Geoinformationssysteme. Hier trafen sich Anwender und Entwickler zum gemeinsamen Austausch über Anwendungs- und Arbeitsmöglichkeiten sowie neuste Entwicklungen in diesem Bereich. Es ging um Webmapping, Geodateninfrastrukturen, Geodatenmanagement, GeoProcessing und Desktop-GIS und um freie Geodaten, wie OpenStreetMap. Mich als WebGIS-Programmiererin am Lehrstuhl für Fernerkundung interessierten v.a. die neuesten Entwicklungen auf den Gebieten, die ich bereits im CAWa-Projekt für das Open-Source WebGIS „WUEMoCA“ (Water Use Efficiency Monitor in Central Asia, siehe auch hier) verwende: relationale Datenbanken mit räumlicher Erweiterung (Postgres/PostGIS), Kartenserver (GeoServer), JavaScript-Webkarten-Applikations-Bibliotheken (OpenLayers, GeoExt), Legenden-Styles (Styled...

Open-Source WebGIS WUEMoCA (Water Use Efficiency Monitor in Central Asia)

Open-Source WebGIS for Monitoring the Water Use Efficiency in Central Asia For sustainable water management in Central Asia, remote sensing products provide independent information on land use, crop productivity and water use efficiency, which is made accessible to local decisionmakers through an online map tool. The target area consists of the agricultural irrigation areas of the Aral Sea basin (about 9 million ha in total) in southern Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and northern Afghanistan. The interactive web map application “Water Use Efficiency Monitor in Central Asia” (WUEMoCA) is designed to improve the use of land and water resources...
