TEAM 3: Big Data for Fishery

TEAM LEADER: Karel Jedlička/University of West Bohemia

PROJECT IDEA: The main aim is to provide an easy to use web map application (based on HS Layers NG technology), which will help users (fleet manager, ship manager, …?) in decision making. Can be similar to, but fed with fishery-related data and data from earth observation and meteorological forecast

The application will provide:

    • Several spatial data layers to create a custom map mashups:
      • Data from satellites (the way of visualisation will be defined for each layer) – Spacebel
        • Wind speed
        • Wind direction
        • Sea temperature
        • Chlorophyll
        • Temperature
        • Turbidity
      • Data from weather forecast (there meteo comp. As a partner of DataBio, MeteoBlue API)
        • Wind speed
        • Wind direction
        • ….
      • Other relevant data
        • Different management divisions (e.g. economic zones, large ecosystems and other)
      • Data about position of tuna fish species (both actually tracked and forecasted by a probabilistic model)
        • Including the probability in the case of forecasted data (by color saturation)
      • Data for ship routing
        • Visualise alternative routes with attributes of estimated fuel consumption and risk (by combination of route color and thickness or by detailed report when user click)
  • Challenge: provide a web interface to set up the start and end point of the route, then recalculate the route instantly to consider ship decisions
  • Dynamic visualisation of the data showing (a time slider will control, what is visualized):
    • Real time (=actual day) situation
    • Forecast (for how long?)
    • Historic data (just for fleet manager?) – an advanced visualization by WebGlayer can be prepared that allows not only visualization, but also basic analytics

The nature of the data is dynamics – all the data are changing in a half day period the most but each layer independently.

The map application will visualize data in various scales/levels of detail/granularity, but the initial granularity will be based on approx. 25 x 50 km (0.5 or 0.25 degrees) cells.

TEAM 2: Albatross

TEAM LEADER: Christian Zinke zinke(at)

TEAM MEMBERS: Stephan Bischoff, Jörg Schließer

PROJECT IDEA: Exploratory Data Visualisation
The idea is to gather and deploy more datasets into Albatross. If possible we will connect SenseLog with Albatross in order to process and analyse the IoT data. Further, we will implement more forecasting models into Albatross.

TEAM 1: Using Time Series of Sentinel 2 and LPIS Data for Crop Detection

TEAM LEADER: Vojtěch Lukas vojtech.lukas(at)

TEAM MEMBERS: we are waiting for you …

PROJECT IDEA: Our idea is to combine time series of Sentinel 2 data from different year period in combination with Land Parcel Information System for detection of crops. The goal is not to have only classification of single pixels, but all parcels. We will offer crop rotation data from one large scale farm, LPIS data and time series. The task is to define best time periods for selections of single crops on the base of multi-temporal statistic. The outputs we expect are detection of parcels with more crops and detection of basic group of crops.
We are looking for people for our time to play with us with this data. We don’t expect necessary web publishing of this data, focus is more on methodology.

Mobile App for Open Land Use

An improvement of design and user interface of the OLU mobile application was made during last period. Rules of the Material Design ( were incorporated in the new design. The design of both mobile and web browser version of the application will be unified for the future. Some features of the graphical user interface were improved other one will be added during next steps. In general, changes should bring straightforward and more consistency of the GUI and thus easier usage of the application. One of mashups is shown on the next figure. A prototype will be finished in the next step and tested on new features. According to testing results, web services of the SensLog VGI module will be modified.

Metadata Catalogue for the Open Land Use Map

TEAM LEADER: Dmitrij Kožuch

TEAM MEMBERS: Dmitrij Kožuch, Karel Charvat, Štěpán Kafka

PROJECT IDEA: The aim of the project is to publish metadata about the Open Land Use (  map dataset as a whole, as well as about the whole hierarchy of European NUTS units. Technologically the metadata will be published through MICKA metadata catalogue using both ISO19115/19119/19139 and GeoDCAT AP standard. As well as vector data for download – the various services will be published. It is also possible to try to publish metadata about RDF version of Open Land Use Map (

Using GeoDCAT AP Specification for Sharing Metadata in GEOSS and INSPIRE

This is one of the project ideas for the INSPIRE Hack 2017:

TEAM LEADER: Karel Charvat

TEAM MEMBERS: Stepan Kafka, Marek Splichal, Dmitrij Kozuch

PROJECT IDEA:  The goal is to test different implementations of GeoDCAT AP which could be a basis for implementation of INSPIRE and GEOSS solutions and for sharing metadata between different projects (DataBio, NextGEOSS, etc). Please join our team. Register yourself and contact me
