In December of 2016 a team of Computer Science students from CSUMB participated (remotely) in the VR Hackathon in San Francisco. They won first place in the X3D category! See their entry at https://devpost.com/software/stoqs-cardboard and their award photo in this tweet.
Here’s a nicely-written story from Wired Magazine about using STOQS for visualizing data from ocean roaming robots. Even though I mentioned “X3D” a dozen times in the interviews it didn’t make it into the story.
A paper describing the architecture and use of STOQS has just been published by the IEEE. You can see it here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/AUV.2014.7054414. This is currently the paper that should be cited for any publications that benefit from using STOQS.
What’s the estimated cost of the STOQS software?
This is the first blog entry on www.stoqs.org, a web site for general postings about using STOQS, the Spatial Temporal Oceanographic Query System. It supplements the repository web site that is currently hosted at https://github.com/stoqs/stoqs.
