On Day 3 at FOSS4G-Asia, different open source projects were presented to the crowd, such as: Geopaparazzi, Tadpole SDM and Policrowd 2.0.
First, Geopaparazzi is an Italian Android project to do field survey, but also tools that can be of great use also to OpenStreetMappers as well as tourists that want to plan their trip. Some can see Geopaparazzi as an apps similar to OSMAnd, even if the clients at first were not the same.
Secondly, Tadpole SDM has been shown for the first time at FOSS4G-Asia. It is a web-based UI in Java to manage spatial database based on Tadpole DB. It is at early stage, so it only supports PostGIS for now, but they plan in three years to support Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server and Spatial Lite. It can manage spatial data, work as Saas, draw query geometry quickly, show select row table, display which database objects has spatial data.
Thirdly, Policrowd 2.0 has been recently released and extending its uses. It is a social platform over Nasa WorldWind and Open Data Kit as a GIS participatory web application, allowing users to populate a virtual 3D globe with their personal geospatial information and with OGC compliant service (ex. WMS).
For the last day of FOSS4G-Asia a sprint code was held on Zoo Project to continue enhancing this open WPS platform.
