[52N Geostatistics] community meeting

Daniel Nüst
hej geostatics community!

the new 52N website is up, but the geostatistics community pages don't
really look good. maybe it's time for a discussion/meeting/hack night to
change that?

imho we could discuss stuff like "vision and mission"/"road map" (if
those are actually needed) or just collect some content.

otherwise we should at least list actually existing projects and take
off the empty pages - those never look good.

/Daniel

Thanks, Daniel, for waking us up!

We had a rather spontaneous meeting this afternoon with whoever was
around in Muenster (Benedict, Lydia, Katharina, Christoph, Daniel) and
discussed vision/mission/road map for the 52N web pages. The drafted
text is below; Daniel will modify the web pages. Any comments or
improvements are welcome.

Other issues discussed:
- software projects that may need seperate web pages at some stage:
sos4R; gstat (when gstat.org gets migrated); other R packages;
- who are the 52N geostatistics community? Anyone can jump on board; of
particular interest are the 52N partners ITC and ESRI; contacts are
there but can and will be expanded;
- the spacetime R package with classes and methods for spatio-temporal
data. Under construction; source code in svn.

52N geostatistics community

Vision

The vision of the 52N geostatistics community is that open source
geostatistical tools can help progress openness in research in general,
and so can help us to understand our environment in order to manage it
in a sustainable way.

Mission

Core aims of this community include:
   * the integration of in situ sensing data from fixed or mobile
sensors with earth observation (remote sensing) data,
   * the integration of stochastic, statistics-based modelling with
physics-based modelling (e.g. transport or diffusion modelling),
   * the analysis of value of information and information deficit, to
find out where additional data collection (or modelling) is most
effective and needed,
   * exploration and application of GRID, cloud and GPGPU computer
infrastructures for high-performance and high-availability geospatial
computing.


Road map

- explore possibilities to integrate statistical functionality in R with
OGC web services, including the WPS and SOS
- improve the handling, analysys and modelling of spatio-temporal data
with open source tools (spacetime R  package)
- develop core tools for enabling the model web to deal with uncertain data
- migrate ai-geostats.org and modernize its contents
- integrate functionality of R packages sos4R and spacetime


Projects [SEPARATE PAGE]

Current software projects:
 * gstat, one of the leading open source projects for geostatistical
modelling, prediction and simulation
 * vardiag (maintained), an R package to ...
 * sos4R, an R package that provides a client to retrieve data from a SOS
 * R - WPS
 * several prototypical projects related to the uncertainty-enabled
model web


Current projects:
   * Intamap, a FP6 project that has created a web processing service
for the automatic interpolation of sensor observation data
   * UncertWeb, an FP7 project that will realize the uncertainty-enabled
model web.
   * DETECT, an FP7 project under EURATOM
   * OWS-7

Upcoming projects:
   * GeoViQua, ...
   * GMES4Mining (IKT.NRW)
