GeoWeb 2008 Student Contest
To advance the development of the GeoWeb, a contest is underway which is open to all full time students attending an educational institution anywhere in the world. The objective of the contest is to materially advance the development of the GeoWeb with either a theoretical solution or a piece of software (all software must be open source and free of any royalties or other encumbrances).
To help students prepare their submissions for the GeoWeb 2008 student contest, here are a few ideas. These are simply suggestions and using these ideas or not, will have no influence on the decision of the judges.
Develop software or solve a theoretical problem to:
Generate 3D models for Google Earth, Virtual Earth etc. from CAD drawings automatically.
To enhance position measurement inside a building.
Integrate Google or Virtual Earth with Second Life.
Generalize from large scale to small scale in 2D and 3D.
Generate GML (observations) from KML and KML (by styling) from GML.
Validate geography and topology automatically using a rule based mechanism.
To visualize the content of an ebRIM (OASIS) registry.
Develop visualization mechanisms for travelogues.
Use wavlets to integrate geometry, coverages and observations.
Students may submit a registration of an abstract of their proposal at any time (see link above). Note that both registration and final submissions are due and must be submitted no later than May 15, 2008.
