Welcome to Ayush Khandelwal for GSoC 2015

Hi everyone, please join me in welcoming Ayush Khandelwal to the community for Google Summer of Code 2015!

Ayush is a third-year student majoring in Computer Science at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Hyderabad working in the Lab for Spatial Informatics. He brings strong experience in many things geospatial, including previous work on compressing GML for more efficient transmission. He’s also already contributed his first pull request to Cesium.

For GSoC 2015, Ayush will be implementing support for the GML Simple Features Profile (SFP) in Cesium, with an eye toward adding full support for rendering features from a Web Feature Service (WFS). GML SFP support will also be helpful for interpreting GetFeatureInfo results from WMS servers.

Congratulations Ayush, we’re looking forward to working with you this (Northern hemisphere) summer!

Kevin

Congratulations Ayush, and hoping that we will see some nice stuff that we can consume in our GIS Applications.

Hello,
I'm interested by GML and I'd like to contribute in Cesium but I'm still waiting some returns about my pull 2362 (https://github.com/AnalyticalGraphicsInc/cesium/pull/2362) in order to improve my work. Do you have a planning about this pull?

Ayush - congratulations and welcome! We’re looking forward to your contributions. I’m sure your GML compression background will come in handy.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for selecting me. I am really grateful. Looking forward to a great summer with cesium!

Ayush

We definitely look forward to having you on the team,

Hi Ayush and Kevin,

Do you have any updates on this project or a roadmap to share?

Thanks,

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

I will post a progress report positively by tomorrow.

Hi,

This is the first progress report for the GML project. I will keep adding the subsequent reports in the same google doc.

Ayush

Thanks for sharing this. Do you also have a roadmap for the rest of the summer?

Patrick

Hi,

Report 2 has been updated. Page 2 of the same google doc.

Hi Ayush,

Do you have a live demo we can explore?

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Please visit this link for live demo - http://ayk115.github.io/cesium/Apps/CesiumViewer/index.html

Sample files - https://github.com/ayk115/cesium/tree/gh-pages/Apps/SampleData/gml

I also created a demo on SandCastle. You can find it in the DataSources demo section. It works locally but not on my gh-pages. I will need some time to discuss with Kevin what’s going wrong. Until then, you can use the Cesium Viewer app itself by dragging-dropping the sample files.

Ayush

Thanks for sharing, looks like you are off to a good start.

Let us know when the Sandcastle demo is live.

Patrick

Hi,
Please checkout report 3 on page 3 of the same google doc.
