Strabon Users

  • Université Libre de Bruxelles. The team of Dr. Vaisman at the Université Libre de Bruxelles used Strabon to store and query information about cultural events taking place in Brussels, in the context of the project OSCB. The datasets http://www.agenda.be/ and http://www.bozar.be/ were transformed into the stRDF data model and enriched with linked geospatial data, such as LinkedGeoData, Geonames and DBpedia. In the respective demo can be accessed online at http://eao4.ulb.ac.be:8080/strabonendpoint/ they use the stSPARQL query language to query this information. This work is also presented in the papers with title “Adding spatial support to R2RML Mappings” and “Querying Brussles Spatiotemporal Linked Open Data” which will be presented at META4eS 2013.

  • National Observatory of Athens. In the context of the European project TELEIOS and the Greek research project SWeFS, National Observatory of Athens has developed a fi re monitoring service, based on Strabon. This service goes beyond systems currently deployed in the GMES context in terms of easiness of implementation, e fectiveness and eficiency and is now operational at the National Observatory of Athens.

  • National Observatory of Athens. In the context of the European project TELEIOS and the Greek research project SWeFSNational Observatory of Athens has developed a web application for burn scar mapping, based on Strabon. This app depicts the results of the processing of the Landsat image archive, generating diachronic maps of the burnt areas in Greece. This web application is being visited by several stakeholders.

  • German Aerospace Centre. In the context of the European project TELEIOS, German Aerospace Centre (DLR) has developed a Virtual Observatory, based on Strabon. This Virtual Observatory goes well beyond the current EOWEB portal of DLR (which simply offers a hierarchical organization of Earth Observation products together with a temporal and geographic selection menu) and enables queries that capture the semantics of the content of the images. These queries exploit the full product metadata but also other information, from the SAR image itself or exogenous e.g., relevant GIS data. These queries are of huge importance for a broad community of users because they can be used to refer to the nature and properties of the SAR products, a complicated piece of information which currently remains hidden in the archives of DLR. A demo can be shown here: http://test.strabon.di.uoa.gr/DLR.
