OGC SensorThings API public commenting period ended

OGC SensorThings API released for public comments

Today the OGC SensorThings API is released for public comment. It is a major milestone for this new Internet of Things (IoT) standard. After two years of hard working we are getting closer and closer to become an official OGC standard. As many of us are the major contributors of the SensorThings API, I guess that's worth to write a blog to celebrate!

Congratulations! Tania passed her Ph.D. candidacy exam.

Congratulations to Tania. She successfully passed her Ph.D. candidacy exam. Her research proposal topic is "An Open Geospatial Internet of Things Cloud Service architecture based on the Big Data Lambda Architecture"

IJGIS Paper Accepted

Our paper titled "Geo-located community detection in Twitter with enhanced fast-greedy optimization of modularity: the case study of typhoon Haiyan" has been accepted by the International Journal of Geographical Information Science. Good job, Mohamed and Leah.

We are back online!!

We are back online! In case you were wondering why we were offline, it was mainly because the server was sitting in Dr. Liang's office. Dr. Liang's office was firstly under renovation, and then Dr. Liang was moved to the other newer office.... anyways, we are back online now and that's the only thing that matters. :)
