Live GIS GSoC 2016
OSGeo-Live Google Summer of Code ideas 2015
OSGeo-Live 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.
Integration of geospatial OSS in educational notebooks
This GSoC 2016 Idea will focus on the development of a web dashboard based on the software and data installed on OSGeo-Live. It will be based on the jupyter gui widget. The dashboard can teach how to “bind” together , code and gui using basic examples. It can be considered a cross project idea where geospatial tools (installed on OSGeo-Live) and data (already on OSGeo-Live) are used to build web-application to visualize and interact with the data and with dataproducts (generated by using the software libraries installed). The results is reusable-code to build web applications.
