Dear Javier,

I’ll try to come up with a concise and (of course) subjective answer :)

First of all, it’s great to hear that you want to explore rdf streaming implementations combined with a GIS use case. I think the combination with GIS is really interesting and relevant.

To answer your question, I can give you some hints on what is my subjective impression:
C-SPARQL seems to me as quite mature in terms of rdf stream processing. It is also backed by many publications, which discuss its real-world application in different scenarios (social media monitoring, city sensing, etc.). Have a look at the webpage for more details [1]. I also got the impression that Emanuele Della Valle (initiator of C-SPARQL) is always willing to discuss issues and the like.

CQELS [2] is somewhat similar to C-SPARQL, yet, it does some things differently. It is also backed by several publications and real-world applications. I would recommend to take a look at it. Word on the street is, that there will be a new version soon-ish, which I am looking forward to.

Then there is EP-SPARQL/ETALIS which takes a more Complex Event Processing-like approach. However, I am not sure if it’s still maintained/updated. Source code [3] and several publications [4, 5] are available.

To do more namedropping, I’d like to mention some more approaches. However, I did not have any time to get my hands dirty on them, yet, so I cannot provide you with more detailed information:
SPARQLstream/morph-streams [6, 7], INSTANS [8], Sparkwave [9].

Another good place to get information on practical aspects are the tutorials given at ESWC/ISWC conferences. Luckily you can access their contents and slides [10]. I think it’s really helpful to look at the slides and get an impression of the engines’ capabilities before getting your hands on. Another good place to get information is the wiki of this very group. We collected many things there. Even though it may still appear a bit unorganized I’d recommend to take a look: [11].

One open question of yours is still the integration with OGC standards. I do not know what you mean precisely, but I think this is still a topic, which has not been quite addressed by the RSP community. I am not sure how tight of an integration with OGC standards you  imagine, but things like spatial queries are definitely doable right now.

Hope that helps!

Betreff: State of the art tools for rdf stream processing

Hi, all:

In the GeoSmartCity project<http://www.geosmartcity.eu/> we aim at developing a framework in which Geo Open Data can be exploited towards Smart City paradigm. One of the scenarios planned forour pilots is underground network management involving water and sewage networkmanagement<https://www.w3.org/community/rsp/wiki/Use_cases#Water_Supply_and_Sewage_Network_Management>. This includes GIS access to sensor data from Water management SCADAs and use of GIS and sensed data to improve modeling and planning of water networks.

We would like to explore an rdf streaming implementation in order to:
- be able to define continous and advanced queries.
- integrate sources, dynamic (weather) or static (type of sensors, geospatial features, etc.).
- integrate with OGC standards frictionless.

Unfortunately the number of different query languages and discontinued tools discourage a bit to follow in this direction.

I would like to ask you which tools that could accomplish this goal have ongoing development and have some traction.


P.D. (Will all of these previous efforts will go to bin when RSP-QL become the unique standard?)
