CNIT presented OpenGeoBase at the 11th ITS Congress in Glasgow

ITS GlasgowOn 7th June 2017 Lorenzo Bracciale from CNIT presented the BONVOYAGE project’s achievement on ICN at the 11th ITS European Congress in Glasgow. The focus of the presentation was on the exploitation of an Information Centric Network facilitated by SDN/NFV for realizing distributed spatial databases.
The resulting distributed spatial database, named OpenGeoBase can quickly and efficiently provide massive information to database users; easily operate in a distributed way, deploying and using many database engines in parallel; secure every piece of content in a customizable way; naturally slice resources, so that several tenants and users can use the database in parallel and independently.
OpenGeoBase allows anyone to publish data relevant to a specific geographic area, ranging from transport schedules to sensor-generated or user generated real-time information, but also, point of interests, etc.
Then, interested users/travel operators can search and retrieve all data available in such geographic area, which are needed to plan an optimal multimodal trip without being forced to upload their data in a central repository. OpenGeoBase logically puts together all individual repositories and make it easy for users to search for and retrieve the data they are interested in.
