  1. Task Report back CB-07 01eOpen Source Software 7th GEO Capacity Building Committee Meeting Hilcéa Ferreira hilcea@dpi.inpe.br INPE - BRAZIL

  2. Background and Objetives • Encourage the use of OSS across EO value chain • Inventory of OS solutions within GEO • Post the inventory into the Web Portal • Encourage development of OSS solutions by building on existing efforts • TerraLib and TerraView as starting GIS platforms (integrated Earth Observation and GIS data)

  3. Milestones achieved to date Building on existing inventories to identify OSS solutions for use in GEO. Pilot implementations in OSS for selected Tasks, and capacity building activities: On going activity Develop the capabilities of end-users of geographical information with no programming skills by providing access and support to a full OSS GIS application package such as TerraView (http://www.dpi.inpe.br/terraview): done.

  4. Expected Milestones for 2008 • July 30: Launching of the TerraView and TerraLib version 3.2.1 • Basically fixes bugs found on 3.2.0 version • Develop TerraView and TerraLib training material, courses, tutorials and documentation for both programmers and end-users available (in English) and develop specialized training material for e-learning. • TerraView Site in English • TerraLib team has been working on a plain new version of the library (version 4.0) • Interoperability (fully OGC - Open Geospatial Consortium - compliant) and efficiency

  5. Expected Milestones for 2008 • Proposal of a Pre-project  training potential users of CBERS users in the “Portuguese” Africa: • Angola • Mozambique • Cape Verde • Equatorial Guinea • Sao Tome and Principe • Using remote sensing images and Geoprocessing using SPRING • Semipresential courses

  6. Expected Milestones for 2008 • JUNE, 2008: launching of a totally new version of SPRING 5.0 • We hope to celebrate it together with the mark of 100,000 downloads around the world What is NEW? • Different database organization: increased speed and efficiency • Main interface was remodeled. Most windows and buttons were reformulated. • It supports images with any radiometric resolution size (previous versions were limited to 8 bits), allowing images from Ikonos or Quickbird • It contains an assistant for importing images from CBERS satellite • Much more…

  7. Extent of participationRecommendations for additional participants • Who could contribute to this task? • ITC • IRD • Very many others... • In process of signing a MOU with IRD… • Translation to French • Interfaces of TerraLib, TerraView and SPRING • All tutorials and manuals of TerraLib, TerraView and SPRING

  8. Current StatusCBERS-2B reception stations in Africa • Maspalomas – operated by INTA (Spain) • Still with technical problem, should be operational by the end of the year. • Malindi (Kenya) and Matera – Both operated by ASI (Italy) • Under negotiation • Hartebeeshoek – operated by CSIR (South Africa) • Probably experimental by the end of the year • Aswan – Egypt (NARSS) • It was not on the initial plan: some tests last month, probably experimental antenna

  9. Expected Products • Image Distribution will be carried out by means of the GEONetCast system, created by the GEO, as well as through other channels on the internet (Image catalog and FTP)

  10. Final remarks • Combining open source software with the technical workforce available in developing countries can enable technology transfer. • TerraLib, TerraView and SPRING have INPE’s support for a long term maintenance policy
