Open source web-based tool for quality control of large spatial datasets
The OSS QC tool is a web-based engine for checking vector and raster datasets. This talk presents lessons learnt while developing a configurable architecture for running resource-intensive data quality control jobs with Django, pyWPS, GDAL and PostGIS open-source geospatial technologies in a web-based environment.
