2019 FOSS4G Bucharest Talks speaker: Angelos Tzotsos
What’s new in OSGeoLive 13.0 ?
OSGeoLive is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around.
It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and documentation.
OSGeoLive is an OSGeo project used in several workshops at FOSS4Gs around the world.
OSGeoLive 13.0 will be released at the end of July 2019 ready for FOSS4G 2019.
Still working on the improvements initiated for OSGeoLive 12.0, it will embedded latest stable version of a vast choice of Open Source Geospatial software. The work on the geodata science with Python and R stacks have also been continued. Documentation is also a big building area and we made a proposal to Google Season of Docs in order to get it even better. We would like to encourage people around the world to help us translate it.
This presentation will reflect what we did for OSGeoLive 13.0, what choices have been made, what we plan to do for 14.0 and after.
OGC Overview: programs, processes, standards baseline and new developments relevant for the OSGeo community
The coordination of increasingly faster development of geospatial Free and Open Source Software and more longer term oriented standards presents some challenges which have been identified and taken up by key organizations of the domain. OGC and OSGeo have a long history of cooperation, since many years we work together through a Memorandum of Understanding, which amongst other aspects provides OSGeo to a certain extend access to the OGC standards development process. The cooperation is meant to bring in requirements, ideas and expertise from the OSGeo community to the OGC programs and processes and provides the OSGeo community with an insight into the current developments of open standards.
The Overview presentation will provide a short insight into the OGC programs and processes and will explain the idea and development approaches for the OGC baseline. It will also talk about the results of various hackathons (OGC API hackathon) and Innovation Program initiatives (e.g. EO Big Data Architecture) that will happen in June and July.
It will furthermore give an update on the Future Directions technology trends mapping of OGC and how the OSGeo community can be part of it.
OGC standards development and the role of OSGeo
OGC and OSGeo have a long history of cooperation, since many years we work together through a Memorandum of Understanding, which amongst other aspects provides OSGeo to a certain extend access to the OGC standards development process. The cooperation is meant to bring in requirements, ideas and expertise from the OSGeo community to the OGC programs and processes and provides the OSGeo community with an insight into the current developments of open standards.
This presentation gives an insight into the development of xyz software (PyCSW?) and the implementation of the abc standard (CSW?) into the software. How does the standards development work in the OGC? What are the perceived benefits of participating in the Standards Program and why does it matter for open source software developers to contribute to the standards development.
pycsw project status 2019
pycsw is an OGC CSW server implementation written in Python and is an official OSGeo Project. pycsw implements clause 10 (HTTP protocol binding - Catalogue Services for the Web, CSW) of the OpenGIS Catalogue Service Implementation Specification, version 3.0.0 and 2.0.2.
pycsw allows for the publishing and discovery of geospatial metadata, providing a standards-based metadata and catalogue component of spatial data infrastructures. The project is certified OGC Compliant, and is an OGC Reference Implementation. The project currently powers numerous high profile activities such as US data.gov/geoplatform.gov, IOOS, NGDS, NOAA, US Department of State, US Department of Interior, geodata.gov.gr and WOUDC.
This session starts with a status report of the pycsw project, followed by an open question/answer session to give a chance to users to interact with members of the pycsw project team. This session will cover how the project PSC operates, what is the current project roadmap, what are the main features of current stable release (2.x) as well as the future direction of the project towards pycsw 3.x that will implement search engine support as well as OGC CSW 4 in support of the emerging OGC API efforts.
