Geomatics Open Lecture Series

We depend on geo-information, but do YOU know what it is?

The Geomatics lecture series is organized for students in order to make the importance of geo-information for our modern day society better known. Geo-information is often invisible, but it controls the functioning of more technical devices than you would think.

For example, it provides the necessary information for safe navigation and the offshore industry, it enables dike deformation monitoring through satellites, 3D modelling for urban space management and building tunnels, and location based services such as TomTom and Google maps. It is also used for traffic monitoring, risk assessment of areas that are vulnerable to flooding, and for much more…

Title: Web Processing Service Standard

Joost Boerboom, Rijkswaterstaat & Fedor Baart, Deltares

In OGC web services standards the Web Processing Service (WPS) standard is currently one of the least used types of services of the WxS family. At Deltares WPS has been implemented for dissemination of several hydrological models to offer promising interoperability and applicability of legacy models. In this guest lecture we’ll show you the strengths and weaknesses of the WPS standard and how you can implement your own model as a service. Rounding up with a live demo showing WPS’s and other possibilities for online modelling. For our 1st year Geomatics students this Open Guest Lecture is obligatory. But also other participants are welcome. Please note that our lecture room has only a limited number of seats (around 10). So if you like to attend as well please inform Monica Boen ( before May 23rd (and put me in c.c
