Luka Glušica, master student of the Geoinformatics module at the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformatics at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Belgrade, has got Google Summer of Codes cholarship. Luka is currently works on his master thesis in field of Information Technologies in cartography at the Laboratory for development of the open source geospatial technologies, under the mentorship of Dr. Milan Kilibarda.

As part of Google Summer of Code program for 2016, the istSOS's authors, within OSGeo organizations, were presented their ideas for further development istSOS. One of the ideas is related to the development of JavaScript framework that will allow developers to easily implement istSOS functionality in existing or new web application.

Luka Glušica was selected to work on the development of above-mentioned JavaScript framework (see details). His work will consist of two main parts:

• development of JavaScript framework of the core library, which will be used for communication with istSOS API through HTTP requests

• Development of a web site / page that will contain a multitude of options for automated code generation, relying on the previously developed core library.

istSOS represents implementation of OGC SOS service written in the Python programming language. istSOS enables efficient management of the data obtained from the sensors.

Implementation of the OGC SOS offers a graphical user interface, which enables easier daily use of services, RESTful Web API, which automate administrative procedures.
