Introduction

The Integration Showcase will highlight the open source spirit of "coopetition" (cooperative competition) amongst the sponsors and exhibitors of the FOSS4G2007 conference.

In order to ensure everything works "as planned" on the show floor, the Integration Showcase will be set up and running live on the Internet well in advance of the conference. As each Integration Showcase participant goes "live" with their component, they must register it on this page, so that other participants can hook it into their own demonstrations. Low-level components, such as databases and mapping services, must go live first.

The coordinator for the Integration Showcase is Justin Deoliveira, of the Open Planning Project. He will be contacting exhibitors and sponsors to make them aware of the showcase and how to participate.

Status

  • 2007/07/10 Refractions Research PostGIS database Internet connection enabled
  • 2007/07/09 Canadian NTDB vector data loaded into PostGIS database

Data

The goal for this conference is to utilize only publicly available geodata for the Integration Showcase.

Initiated by the OSgeo Public Geospatial Data Committee, there is an effort underway to obtain copies of public datasets that are 'local' to Victoria, B.C. (the FOSS4G2007 conference location), and to load that data onto the server that will be used for the Integration Showcase.

The tracking of the public datasets is being done via the Canadian Geodata wiki page.

PostGIS Database : Telascience - FlightGear Landcover-DB Mapserver

Access

We regret that, due to technical reasons, direct PostGIS database access is currently unavailable.

Layers

Over 140 Vector layers from approx. 12 different sources available. Please see further explanations and layer descriptions (behind the "DETAILS" link of every respective section) at the Landcover-DB pages.

The colour schema has been applied in accordance with the Corine Land Cover project.

Available datasets include detailed landuse polygon data at - yet - selected areas (example). This data has been automatically aquired from Landsat7 images at the World Custom Scenery Project.

Services

This section will contain information about services to access the above Data, such as WMS.

Find out how to access Canadian Geodata via WMS and WFS.

Participants

Integration Showcase participants must 'register' themselves in this section. When your part of the showcase is ready for use by other participants:

  • let Justin Deoliveira know
  • provide the necessary information in the Data and/or Services sections
  • update the Status

PostGIS Database : Refractions Research

Status: Live

A PostGIS database containing vector data is being made available by Refractions Research for use by the Integration Showcase participants.

PostGIS Database : Telascience - FlightGear Landcover-DB Mapserver

Status: Live

A Mapserver/TileCache frontend to a PostGIS database which contains vector data from approx a dozend different sources.

Mapbender : The WhereGroup

Status: Live

The WhereGroup uses the online OSGeo Mapbender instance at http://wms1.ccgis.de/mapbender_dev/ This URL will probably change to http://mapbender.telascience.org before the conference starts. This Mapbender instance is then used to build a catalog, interface, OGC capabilities cache, security proxy and web mapping interfaces. All IntegrationShowcase components that can be accessed via WMS or WFS through the global spatial data infrastructure (also known as "The Internet") can be used to showcase in Mapbender. The data served by Canadian Geodata will be accessed using OGC WMS and (potentially) WFS services.

A GeoServer has been installed and configured as OGC WFS-T and WMS to add places for after hours and meeting outside business hours. The OGC WFS-T can be accessed either directly at: (URL will be added on the first conference day) or through the Mapbender application (URL follows) or through a KML file (URL follows).

MapGuide Open Source : Autodesk / DM Solutions

Status: Planned

Autodesk will host a MapGuide Open Source application featuring a FUSION based web interface created by DM Solutions. This will showcase the web-based GIS capabilities of MapGuide with a FUSION interface, MapGuide's direct support for Google Earth, and OGC WMS and WFS web services.

Contact: robert.bray@autodesk.com

GRASS GIS

Status: Planned

GRASS folks at FOSS4G2007 might be willing to showcase the capabilities of GRASS to import, analyze and visualize the data set. Initial screenshots are available here. Data can furthermore exported to KML for (Google Earth or NASA/WorldWind) and more.


GeoServer

Status: Live

GeoServer providing read/write access via WFS-T. Showcase attendees are encouraged to edit data and have it visualized by other showcase components.

ETL Server: Safe Software Inc.

Status: Planned

A service that reads data from multiple sources including data from a PostGIS database and a GeoRSS web service of earthquakes, buffer the earthquakes proportionally to magnitude, intersect this with the coastal zones and then generate a new layer that shows populated areas at low elevation within range of recent earthquakes (last 24 hours) that might be at risk for tsunami. The result will be served up for general consumption as WFS, WMS, KML and/or GeoRSS.
