Author(s): Matteo Mattavelli
Thesis for: Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences, University of Milano–Bicocca, Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences, 2016
Abbreviated abstract: This thesis proposes a system for retrieval and management of multi-source and heterogeneous information. To organize and aggregate both ice cores proxy data (useful to evaluate climatic fluctuations on the past) and glaciers geomorphic parameters (useful to validate and calibrate glaciological model) aimed to assess the glaciers' response to climatic fluctuations in the past or in the future, a SDI with a dedicated geoportal and GIS tools was developed.

OGC announces simplified web mapping standard
The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc (OGC) has announced that the OGC membership has adopted the OGC® WMTS Simple Profile, which defines a simplified profile of the OGC Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) Interface Standard (see below). WMTS Simple limits the flexibility of the original OGC WMTS standard for the sake of interoperability with some mass market tile distributions that do not claim to be WMTS compliant but in fact share elements of the WMTS requirements.
