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

OSGeo-Live Dashboard

This GSoC 2016 Idea will focus on the development of interactive web application (dashboards) where the user will learn how to build interactive web-based widgets to execute common task in geospatial data processing. The series of "interactive dashboards" will make use of the data already available on the OSGeo-Live as well as web-based resources, making wide use of the OGC standard protocol to access the dataset. The working environment will be based on the jupyter-notebook which enable fast prototyping of both analytical methods as well as GUI components. Such dashboard will teach how to “bind” together, code and GUI using basic example workflow. 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 interactive web-application to visualize and interact with the data-source and with data-products. The results will be a set of reusable-code to build interactive web applications.
