InnoHPC - Success story University of Ljubljana and Termodron d.o.o


The basic idea and motivation for a collaboration was to develop a methodology for parallel processing of big data and geographic information system (GIS). We used QGIS software on HPC. The data was obtained by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). This method could be utilized in the field of agriculture.

They have had several Skype online meetings with the company Termodron d.o.o. The company Termodron d.o.o. has introduced the problem involving extensive GIS simulation. The main idea was that this large data problem should be parallelized in order to be used on HPC. Several discussions were held online about the procedure. The realization of the preparation of the data took more time that it was expected. Only recently the data was prepared and it was not possible to process it in such a short time. The conclusion was that all the prepared data could be processed in the upcoming PRACE projects, since there was not enough time to conclude the project and get results.
