Bei dieser Abendveranstaltung habt Ihr die Chance Mitglieder, Entwickler, Unternehmen und andere interessierte Leute zu treffen. Kernthema dabei sind Open Source Software basierte Lösungen, die mit räumliche Daten arbeiten, diese analysieren und präsentieren. Andrew Ross und Ralph Müller werden für Fragen rund um die Eclipse Foundation/LocationTech IWG zur Verfügung stehen.
Um das Event so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten, werden wir Getränke kaltgestellt haben und leckere Canapès auftischen.
This LocationTech Meetup is a chance to meet members, project developers, entrepreneurs, and other interesting people for an enjoyable evening of good food, drinks, and camraderie. The evening will feature presentations from advanced open source technology projects.
We'll be hosted by the NORDAKADEMIE Graduate School again with a stunning view of the river Elbe.

Introducing GraphHopper - A Fast and Flexible Route Planner
|Peter Karich, GraphHopper|
GraphHopper is a fast Open Source road routing engine written in Java running on the server as well as on Android. It uses OpenStreetMap as data source and implements road routing via Dijkstra algorithm and variations.
The talk will cover how GraphHopper can be used for route planning purposes and even beyond that. As we are using OpenStreetMap data I'll also summarize some problems we encountered, be it incomplete data or licensing issues regarding geocoding or routing data mixing.
Several algorithms found in GraphHopper are not specific to GIS-domain but solve nicely problems in this area. I will give some insights of how certain parts are working and which algorithms where necessary.
Design Geo Maps in Eclipse and Run on your Website
|Erdat Karaca, Freelancer/Individual|
A demo of an exemplary application powered by the LocationTech Geoff project. It will guide you through the design of a geographical map consisting of various different thematic layers, then show how to use the result on a website, embedded into a HTML page.
Development of tsunami early warning systems and future challenges
Martin Hammitzsch, Research Associate,
GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences
After the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean region three complementary projects at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences addressed scientific and ICT challenges for the implementation of tsunami early warning systems. Different prototype versions have been tested and validated in the fringes of international efforts coordinated by the UNESCO/IOC.
Major parts of the final prototype are intended for public release as Free and Open Source Software. This prototype has been further developed after demonstrating unique features in an international exercise and finally remained unfinished for the productive use. The projected release includes an Eclipse RCP and uDig based client user interface and several OGC, OASIS and W3C standard-based services. Components of this version are earmarked for the transfer to the Eclipse space, specifically to the LocationTech WG and Science WG. Two proposals are in preparation, one for the user interface and thus the heart of the tsunami early warning system, and another one for an Android app integrated in the system and used for the collection of eyewitness reports and crowd mapping purposes.
The talk will provide insights into the system's history, technology, workflow, and functionality. Moreover ideas on the system's future in the Eclipse space are shared to start discussions on how to work towards a stable, code-beautified, and ready-to-use release which in turn causes a growing and healthy community adopting the system.
Advanced data workflow with GeoGig (aka GeoGit)
|Frank Gasdorf, uDig Project Steering Committee
GeoGig takes concepts and lessons learned from the open source programming world and applies them to management of geospatial information, allowing better and decentralized management of versioned data and enabling new and innovative workflows for collaboration.
Geospatial Applications with Oracle Spatial and uDig
|Karin Patenge,Oracle Deutschland B.V. & Co. KG
Brief intro into Oracle Spatial. Overview of combining Oracle Spatial with open source tools to process spatial data and run spatial services like
- Loading vector and raster data into Oracle Spatial
- Visualization of spatial data through uDig
- Raster algebra analytical operations
Overview/Demo of some Geo-Related Google APIs
|Marco Pöhler, Google Developer Group Hamburg
Marco will give a short introduction for some geo related Google APIs.
- Geochart (Google-Charts)
- Browser-based Location / IP-Resolution
OpenScienceMap - Boosting map-based applications by joint open map-based research
|Falko Schmid, OpenScienceMap.org
In this talk Falko will briefly summarize the idea of OpenScienceMap, and discuss the need for more joint open research and research-driven result delivery for making a real difference when it comes to future map applications.
