PubSubHubBub: Real-time Event Notifications For Our OGC Services

Posted by Patrice Cappelaere Sat, 12 Sep 2009 16:35:00 GMT

Leveraging another Google feat with the newly minted PubSubHubBub protocol or PSHB, interested users can now get real-time notifications when new products from EO-1 are available.  Rather than polling our server at:, consumers can subscribe for that feed at:

They can enter their own callback to receive changes as it happens.

This capability is also now built-in Feedburner, Google Alerts and Google Reader.  More on TechCrunch

The same feed is available on FeedBurner:

But why would you subscribe to it there?  unless you are a human!

Feel free to use Google Reader and add that feed to your favorites.

For SensorWeb to be relevant, we believe that any of its data and assets can be no further away than two degress of separation from anyone in the world. This does assume that those users would be from trusted domains and would have been granted the proper permissions from their organizations.  We are coining this our SWE "Bacon" number or Two.  So, you are doing SWE?  What is your Bacon number?

GeoBliki in Sensors Magazine

Posted by Patrice Cappelaere Wed, 20 Feb 2008 03:07:00 GMT

A great article from Sam Bacharach published in Sensors Magazine. The OGC SensorWeb Enablement is picking up some steam. We are greatly appreciative to NASA, one of our sponsors.

The OGC interoperability demonstrations such as OWS-4 and OWS-5, are crucial for standard adoption. As mentioned in the article, our focus for OWS-5 is in enterprise workflow scenarios (geobpms) for national or international emergency response such as fires or floods.
