GEISER: From Sensor Data to Internet-based Geo Services

GEISER is a collaboration project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the Smart Service World innovation program. Together with partners from industry and academia, in GEISER we're building an open, service-based cloud platform for the acquisition, transformation, storage, integration, quality assurance, and efficient processing of sensor based geo data. Use cases addressed in the project include data-driven geomarketing for small and medium-sized businesses and retailers, smart routing services, technician operational planning, and smart search for parking spaces. As a consortium member, metaphacts will focus on designing and implementing scalable backend services for the storage, retrieval, and processing of semantic geo data, by combining state-of-the-art semantic data management with Big Data technologies for scale-out and GPU acceleration.
