Geospatial Track: Apache SIS for Earth Observation and Beyond - Martin Desruisseaux, Geomatys

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Apache SIS is a library for helping developers to create their own geospatial application. SIS follows closely international standards published jointly by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In this talk we will show how SIS provides a unified metadata model based on ISO 19115 standard for summarizing the content of some file formats used for earth observation: GeoTIFF, NetCDF, Landsat 8 and MODIS. We will show how to get the Coordinate Reference System (CRS) from those file formats or from other sources like Well Known Text (WKT) 2 or registry maintained by authorities, and how to use those CRS for coordinate operations. We will present new issues to take in account when applying those tools to extra-terrestrial bodies like Mars or asteroids. Finally we will present next developments proposed for Apache SIS.


Martin Desruisseaux

Developer, Geomatys
I hold a Ph.D thesis in oceanography, but have continuously developed tools for helping analysis work. I used C/C++ before to switch to Java in 1997. I develop geospatial libraries since that time, initially as a personal project then as a GeoTools contributor until 2008. I'm now contributing to Apache SIS since 2013. I attend to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) meetings about twice per year in the hope to follow closely standard developments and... Read More →
