  • Introduce. Becaose of my english…. I will help myself by PPT presentation and by my notes. The GeoGame project is designed as an application for a common web-site visitor, who wants to check his/her knowledge about the northern Bohemian region. The GeoGame gives you the opportunity to show your knowledge internet-wide. ( knowledge in geography, your historical skills, knowledge of celebrities, of nature phenomena…. ) The principle is very simple. Your task is to locate several displayed photos ( photo ) on the interactive( interactive ) map with the smallest possible error measured by the distance between marked and correct position. I WANT TO introduce you very simple GIS application named Geogame

  • Calculation of the catchment area for a given point. To achieve meaningful results it is necessary to enter a point on Thalweg. The result is the area from which water flows to the specified point Calculate the area submerged for a given height of water at a specified point. Calculate fluid drain path from the specified location. The calculation can be used as a quick graphical representation of risk in case of leakage flows hazardous liquids. Calculation of the visibility analysis. The analysis area is visible from the observer position.
  • FLOOD PORTAL An obligatory document for flood commission s management The obligation to have prepared Flood Plan arises from Water Law (254/2001 Sb.) for all level of local governments. Liberec Region Flood Plan had to be ratified by Liberec Region Council (in April 2004) and had to correspond with superior Flood Plan of Czech Republic (acquired in September 2004) ON-LINE AVAILABLE AT http:// flood .kraj-lbc.cz DATA AND MAPS – BACKGROUND DATASETS ZABAGED (Fundamental Base of Geographic Data) 1 : 10 000 , The Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadastre , Updated 2009 Ortophotomap 20 cm per pixel , Geodis 2006 Digital model of terrain , Geodis 2005 Administrative boundaries and addresses points , Czech Statistical Office, 2009 ….

  • OGC’s Web Processing Service draft paper 05-007r4 is defining the way, geoprocessing operations should be offered over networks using Web Services . This paper introduces one of it’s implementation. The target of PyWPS (Python Web Processing Service) is to offer GIS tools over web interface . PyWPS offers the user environment for writing own parts of WPS - Processes - bringing functionality of GIS GRASS and other geoprocessing tools should be as easy as possible.
  • PyWPS has been written in Python programming language and currently it supports GetCapabilities, DescribeProcess and Execute types of request, though it is still in very early stage of development. From the beginning, PyWPS should serve as an environment for GIS GRASS modules. By default, all geoprocessing operations are working in temporary GRASS Location and after the resulting map has been calculated, this Location is removed afterwards. It is possible to use an already existing GRASS location and its included maps or creating a new location, which will be removed at the end of the process. In both cases temporary mapsets are created. To create its own process, PyWPS has a very easy-to-use way to do so: create a Python script with a definition of the process, its inputs and outputs and an execute() function, which will be called by PyWPS. All advantages of Python programming can be used within the PyWPS framework. Not only GRASS modules can be called, basically all textoriented tools can be used. Though usable, PyWPS is in early beta stage and developers and new users are welcome to contribute on this application. PyWPS has been developed with support of DBU (Deutsche Bundestifftung Umwelt).
  • Currently there is a sample installation of PyWPS , which is accessable from the URL http://www.bnhelp.cz/mapserv/wpsdemo/index.php. It is based on a sample dataset of Czech Republic The following processes have been implemented: … Other processes, such as interpolation of raster maps from input point data, raster reclassification and others are tested in other application with no public access .

    • The main objective is to present extended functionality of existing regional Flood Portal - online available spatial analysis possibilities
    • For the communication between the mapping application (client) and GRASS GIS, OGC Web Processing Service protocol was used (implemented by PyWPS on the server-side).
    • T he functionality was made by using GRASS GIS module s: r. lake … for flooding r.drain … for runoff r.water.outlet … for catchement r.los … for visibility
    Main Objective 28th May, 2010 5th eLearning Africa 2010 Conference
    • WHAT IS WHAT
    • Flood Portal of Liberec Region what it is
      • maps and data
      • technical outlines
    • Technologies server: PyWPS, Grass GIS, UMN Mapserv client: HS-RS DHTML Mapping client
    • PyWPS demonstration
    FLOOD PORTAL An obligatory document for flood commission s management The obligation to have prepared Flood Plan arises from Water Law (254/2001 Sb.) for all level of local governments. Liberec Region Flood Plan had to be ratified by Liberec Region Council (in April 2004) and had to correspond with superior Flood Plan of Czech Republic (acquired in September 2004) ON-LINE AVAILABLE AT http:// flood .kraj-lbc.cz

  • OGC Web Processing Service OGC’s Web Processing Service is defining the way, geoprocessing operations should be offered over networks using Web Services. Can be con fi gured to o ff er any sort of GIS functionality to clients across a network. Data can be stored on the server, sent with the request or stored on remote servers (WCS, WFS, . . . ) The GIS functionality is referred as process Scope: To move the geospatial calculations from client to server 28th May, 2010 5th eLearning Africa 2010 Conference
  • Py WPS Implementation of OGC Web Processing Service 0.4.0 Only interface between Internet and used programs GRASS GIS , R, GDAL/OGR, PROJ.4, . . . Free Software, GNU/GPL .

  • Py WPS demo on Flood Portal of Liberec Region 1. Spatial analysis - CATCHMENT / BASIN Calculation of the catchment area for a given point. To achieve meaningful results it is necessary to enter a point on Thalweg. The result is the area from which water flows to the specified point 28th May, 2010 5th eLearning Africa 2010 Conference The calculated data can be downloaded in GeoTIFF format
  • Py WPS demo on Flood Portal of Liberec Region 2. Spatial analysis - RUNOFF Calculate fluid drain path from the specified location. The calculation can be used as a quick graphical representation of risk in case of leakage flows hazardous liquids. 28th May, 2010 5th eLearning Africa 2010 Conference The calculated data can be downloaded like GML
