GEOSERVER, GEOTOOLS, GEOBATCH: RELYING ON THE “USUAL SUSPECTS” FOR SUPPORTING OPERATIONAL METEOROLOGY AND OCEANOGRAPHY
Supporting operational Meteorology and Oceanography is a challenging task due to complexity and heterogeneous nature of the data to manage, which must be available on time, at the right place, and which is usually obtained from a wide number of sensors (satellites, autonomous vehicles, in-situ sensors, etc) and prevision models. Moreover, very often, new data is produced on the fly for statistical purposes (e.g. ensemble modeling) or to be used as input for refined processing (e.g. multiple cascaded model runs). To complicate things further such data is usually multidimensional (x,y,z,t,band).
The author will present and discuss the solutions developed and employed by various GeoSolutions’ clients based on an open source GIS software, to store, convert, fuse and deliver the above mentioned datasets. The achievements obtained during last year will be presented and discussed as well as the deficiencies that are still to be addressed and the future developments.
