A team from Snowflake Software has successfully demonstrated the first practical implementation of the upcoming OGC WFS-T 2.0 specification within the aviation strand of the OGC OWS-7 testbed.
Web Feature Service and Eventing
Working to real life flight dispatch scenarios (disruption due to volcanic ash and snow), Snowflake effectively demonstrated the powerful capability of GO Publisher to retrieve and update data in real-time via web services (WFS and eventing). Deployed in a secure, distributed IT infrastructure where interoperability and on demand, 24/7 performance are key, Snowflake’s GO Publisher was used to serve aeronautical (AIXM 5.1) and weather (WXXM 1.1) data to dispatchers and pilots in real-time.
Snowflake also demonstrated the flexibility and productivity of GO Loader to transform and load aeronautical and weather data provided in a wide range of schema to produce a single authoritative aeronautical data store which underpinned the project.
The full results have been published by the OGC in the following engineering reports: http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/per,
as well as a set of informative videos to support the findings of the testbed: http://www.opengeospatial.org/
The OGC have also announced they will be holding webinars to present the results. The webinars will be held on Thursday 19 August and Wednesday 8 September and more details can be found on their website: http://www.opengeospatial.org/event/ows7webinars .
Melissa Burns, Marketing Manager commented:
“The additional features that the new standard adds to GO Publisher means that as well as being an INSPIRE compliant Web Feature Service, users can perform temporal or stored queries on the data in real-time, enhancing the web service for end users – something many organisations rely on for operational effectiveness and business continuity.”
“We recently unveiled the upcoming release of GO Publisher (including the WFS-T 2.0 technology) at the INSPIRE conference and anyone who would like to trial the latest technology should request a copy of the pre-release version.”
