Camptocamp – News

OGRS 2009

8 July 2009

Camptocamp currently participates to OGRS 2009, the International Opensource Geospatial research Symposium in Nantes. Today was dedicated to research presentations and I was happy to observe that GeoExt is very well known and was mentionned in several presentations. I followed the topics “Cartography and standards” and “Geospatial Web”.

My highlights are:
– The automated label placement algorithms developed by the University of Applied Science from Switzerland. I have some doubts about the pertinence of a WPS service for this kind of application. Nevertheless, the algorithm is impressive and it would be fantastic to see it implemented in standard cartographic servers.
– Another refreshing presentation was made by two surveyor students who developed a web mapping applications dedicated to the Paris prime meridian.

I will present tomorrow a lab named “State of the art of the creation of GIS rich internet application”. You can already follow this lab here. Olivier Courtin will present a showcase: “TinyOWS an High Performance WFS-T server”
