This session will deliver insight into how a Commerce shop can be built to sell geodetic satellite data.
An aerospace company builds compact and lightweight satellites which collect earth observation data. This data are sold through a shop built with Drupal Commerce.
Some of the technical challenges:
- how Commerce products can be made configurable for customers by drawing their areas of interest in an Open Layers Map
- how sophisticated geographical computations can be integrated into Drupal by using PostGIS functions
- how incompatibilities between Drupal caching and the Open Layers Drawing tools were overcome
