Join us in SpatialAPI 2020!

29—Oct—2020, by Spiros Athanasiou

The OpertusMundi team will be delivering a hands-on tutorial one of the first value-added services of the topio marketplace in the upcoming 2nd ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Geospatial Data Access and Processing APIs (SpatialAPI 2020) on November 3rd, 2020.

The title of the tutorial is “SLIPO: Scalable Data Integration for Points of Interest”. Participants will gain a hands-on experience on SLIPO, an integrated framework supporting the integration of Big POI data assets using Linked Data technologies. The SLIPO service is accessible via a streamlined interactive front-end allowing users to visually define and execute data integration workflows, as well as within interactive Jupyter notebooks facilitating the use of data integration within broader geospatial data science workflows.

The goal of the SpatialAPI2020 workshop is to provide students and researchers with hands-on experience with useful APIs such as web APIs or library APIs related to spatial data processing. At the same time, it gives an opportunity for API providers to reach out to targeted audience that can use their APIs. This will be an excellent opportunity for researchers to get familiar with the APIs that are available for their research and development. At the same time, the API providers will be able to get direct feedback for their users to understand how to further improve their APIs and make them more user-friendly.

The tutorials will be done in a classroom-style setting where the audience will bring their laptops to follow the directions of the presenter. The room will be provided with a projector for the presenter and power and Internet for everyone. The organizers will be happy to entertain additional requirements by the presenters based on availability. We will encourage the speakers to share their material before the tutorials so that students can download any required datasets and install any prerequisite software. Remote participation will be available for those unable to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions.
