Sentilo and gvSIG: Agreement to collaborate
We are pleased to announce that Sentilo and gvSIG communities have reached an agreement to collaborate closely in order to make it easier for users, partners and developers of both communities to deploy an integrated sensor platform and a Geographic Information System, both based on open source.
Sentilo is an open source sensor and actuator platform designed to fit in the Smart City architecture of any city who looks for openness and easy interoperability. It is the piece of architecture that will isolate the applications that are developed to exploit the information "generated by the city" and the layer of sensors deployed across the city to collect and broadcast this information.
It's built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of cities and companies that believe that using open standards and free software is the first smart decision a Smart City should take. In order to avoid vertical solutions, Sentilo is designed as a cross platform with the objective of sharing information between heterogeneous systems and to easily integrate legacy applications.
The collaboration agreement will provide mutual priority support among and for members of the two communities who wish to integrate Sentilo and gvSIG in their projects.
Both gvSIG and Sentilo were awarded in the Sharing & Reuse Conference 2017, organized by the European Commission, in the "Cross Border" category (gvSIG won the first prize and Sentilo won the third prize).
