Snowflake Software has been a proud part of the CITI-SENSE project since its inception 4 years ago. Based on years of industry experience working with Open Standards and cloud platforms, Snowflake has managed to lead in developing the Spatial and Environmental Data Services (SEDS) Platform to host CITI-SENSE air quality data.

As the project draws to a close, Ballal Joglekar, Senior Consultant at Snowflake Software has captured two sides of the project by crafting two white papers, giving an insight into what it takes to develop a cloud-hosted platform to share data using Open WFS Standards.
