In the context of the Dubrovnik INSPIRE Hackathon, 3 challenges related to citizen-science and environmental monitoring are taking place and involve the following themes:
Improve interoperability between methods for sharing in-situ and citizen-sourced data // The focus lies on the use of SensorThings API standard as well as on developing and testing tools to provide combined visualization of data coming from different sources. This involves also sharing of environmental measurements coming from different IoT devices and in-situ monitoring sensor networks.
Integrating INSPIRE with Citizen Science and EO authentication systems // The focus lies on improving accessibility to protected resources while also enabling their direct consumption and utilisation by third party applications.
Establish the connection of Citizen Observatories resources with central catalogue// The challenge attempts to implement harvesters that will enable ingestion of metadata of citizen science resources to a centralised catalogue and eventually to GEOSS.
The hackathon is virtual and involves participants from all over the globe!
