SAWS: Development of a spatial analysis service and its application in the implementation of a management system for human habitats
This project has two main scientific objectives: to investigate the implementation of a web service for the analysis of spatial data -Spatial Analysis Service (SAS)- and develop an Analysis System Human Habitats (SAHH) that enable users to study the conditions of the rural population entities of Galicia. p>
Among the challenges of this project must include the following: design of a software architecture for SAS, define a language for specifying spatial analysis procedures, design space efficient data structures for heterogeneous data recording and multimedia elements, and design algorithms for precise spatial analysis operations. p>
SAS development has a significant and immediate application to many real problems, in fact, this project will have an immediate transfer of technology. Moreover, SAHH will test and validate SAS with a real application and study the characteristics of the traditional population settlements and palliate the rural depopulation, increasing the value of Galician architectural heritage. p>
- Study of the technologies, tools and methodologies for the development of software applications to manage spatial information, with application to geographic information systems.
- Development of a web service to analyze spatial data -Spatial Analysis Service (SAS)- stored in data sources distributed over web services compliant with Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards.
- Development of a Human Habitats Analysis System that enables the analysis of the conditions of rural population entities in Galicia
