Feuerwehreinsatzkarten mit OSM

Roman Härdi
Wenn es brennt, eilt es! – Karten in vorbereiten Akten sollen für die Anfahrt und für den Einsatz die notwendigen Informationen gut lesbar zur Verfügung stellen. Der Vortrag zeigt, welche die für die Feuerwehr wichtigen Informationen mit Geobezug sind (z.B. Anfahrt, Gefahren, Transformatoren/Verteilkasten, Wasserbezug, Gebäudeinformationen). Welche gibt es schon in OpenStreetMap und welche fehlen noch? Bei unserer Feuerwehr gibt es auch noch „exotische“ Löschwasserquellen: unterirdische vorbereitete Staustellen, welche natürlich auch visualisiert werden müssen, weil sie...


Olivier Van Acker
Two technologies; both new, exciting, with lots of new features, so why not put them together and have even more fun? This talk is about my effort to combine two (relatively) new technologies; Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) and the computer language Go, by implementing the functionality of SCTP as a library in Go. SCTP is a reliable message oriented transport protocol, has resistance against flooding and masquerade attacks and includes congestion avoidance procedures. First...
