Two Summer Schools on Open-Source Geo Tools

04/05/2016

Registration now is open for two International Summer Schools introducing to open-source geo tools, organized by Spatial Ecology and held at the University of Basilicata in Matera, Italy. Without assuming previous programming skills, geo data users will be guided to immerse into the power and wealth of open-source tools, ranging from desktop to high-performance data processing. Specifically, experts from the rasdaman team will introduce to Big Geo Data.

Elephant Meeting on Big Data Services

07/12/2015

While we try to get to grips with the ever-increasing “Big Data” deluge we recognize that adequate Web services are a key prerequisite for ubiquitous, flexible, and fast data access. In a massive concertation effort several large European initiatives have teamed up now to address the service challenge. From 12 through 13 November 2015 an inaugural EUDAT Workshop on services for Big Data held successfully at the Supercomputing Center in Barcelona, Spain. Representatives of three decisive Big Data projects - EUDAT, EarthServer, and EPOS - have come together to discuss innovative alternatives for value-adding services.
