My name is Florian Zouhar.
I am a software engineer & computer scientist from Germany.
Designing and developing complex cloud architecture and distributed systems is definitely one of my passions. My goal is to use wide spread knowledge in technologies and development operations along with good communication and consultant skills to achieve most viable results. See my activities off work here.
This is a collection of projects i have created or contributed to.
The Charger is a core part providing essential functions and models to work with geospatial data. The main storage is the Tank, designed and developed to be used in cloud environments. Based on a column-oriented database it stores geospatial bigdata to do simple analytic extracts and more important to create vector tiles on the fly for blazing fast map interfaces. Last but not least the Open Source component Tyler provides minimal and simple self-contained access to a subset of your data.
My main contributions are designing and implementing cloud-based solutions to support smart farming in Greece. We developed agriculture monitoring systems based on sensor and earth observation data.
I supported mainly interface communications between components and development operations. Our components in this project were deploymented in a container orchestration system using different tenants for development and production inside the Open Telekom Cloud.
GeoRocket is based on Elasticsearch and provides a query and aggregation endpoint. I was mainly involved in designing the aggregation DSL and implementing plugins used in the commercial GeoRocket Pro version.
My main responsibility was implementing the complex interactive interface. Additionally, I was taken into account adapting REST endpoints and maintain our on-premise deployment of database components.
Certifications i have achieved in information technology topics.
Scientific work i have published in the field of visualizations and vector data processing.
