This course addresses the issues of how to design and implement collaborative computer systems on the internet in the context of a spatial data infrastructure (SDI).
This course addresses the issues of how to design and implement collaborative computer systems on the internet in the context of a spatial data infrastructure (SDI). These systems should be capable of handling spatial data, metadata and sharing geoinformation resources (data/functions/sensors/…) in a user community. In generic terms, these systems offer geo-services, which are normally based on geodata sources that they are holding, or are obtaining from external systems. This also includes ways of collaborative mapping and methods to find geo-information stored in SDI's and on the Web.
You will get hands-on experience with both basic and advanced SDI services for information discovery, retrieval, processing and visualization. This will also involve tutorials and self study work on service integration and consumption and messaging techniques using XML. In a group project the students will construct their own SDI components. We will embark upon different scenarios of crowd sourcing geo-information.
SDI architecture & service stack • Data/Service metadata • Client/server load balancing • Collaborative mapping / crowd sourcing of geo-information
At the end of the course the student has to be able to prototypically design a web-based software system that functions within an SDI.Students will also be able to build those SDI components that make it possible for users to publish, find and access spatial information over the internet.
