Solenix Workshop - Automated User Interface Testing04 August 2016

During the August workshop we discussed automated user interface testing. We at Solenix use UI tests to simulate user interactions with our web applications offering us the possibility to discover weak points. Automated tests make our engineers’ lives easier as the tests ensure the integrity of the code during our nightly checks. After having researched several tools available in the market, our choice is SeleniumHQ, which allows us to test our products with all major web browsers and with different programming languages.

ESA Proba-V App developed by Solenix-led Consortium15 April 2016

Solenix’s consortium for Software Prototyping and Mobile App Development at ESRIN recently published the ESA Proba-V App, for Android and iOS devices.

The App allows users to obtain information about the vegetation status around a location, as derived from the NDVI products of ESA's Proba-V satellite. The current version uses 10-day products, of 1Km resolution, but future upgrades of the App will use 300m and even 100m resolution data.
