Title: Software engineering challenges in the integration of spatial data and services from distributed and heterogeneous sources


Abstract:

The pervasiveness of the Internet to all kinds of connected devices has changed the landscape in software engineering theory and practice. Internet-based services are now available for literally any application, ranging from personal applications to large-scale enterprise systems. Traditional web services evolve into cloud-based applications, available in many heterogeneous platforms that compete for the end-user's attention; integration, interoperability, data sharing, security, privacy and availability are among the key requirements that need to be satisfied by modern software systems. More than a few of such systems have a spatial dimension, which means that at least part of the data involved are geo-tagged and may also flow both ways to and from end-users.

Involvement of the speaker in the design and development of software systems that integrate large-scale spatial data with computational services to provide decision support in environmental crisis management, has brought up some key software engineering challenges: web service APIs, spatial data standardization, dynamic data management, performance, reliability for mission-critical applications, and of course cost-effectiveness, just to name a few. This talk will focus on these challenges from the software engineering point of view and will discuss lessons learned from the development of such systems in a continuously evolving connected world.

Colloquium coordinators are Prof.dr. M. Aiello (e-mail : M.Aiello@rug.nl ) and
