Execution environment: linux
Version of the environment: Linux, Windows, MacOS
Install & Run: Assuming you have already installed Maven (http://maven.apache.org/download.html), downloaded Sextant and you are in the top-level directory of the source code, issue the following commands to build it from command line:
$ cd JerseyServer
$ mvn clean package
After you have successfully built Sextant, you can find the .war file in the target folder under JerseyServer, to deploy in Tomcat(6+) server
Additional information: The old version of Sextant, was one of the first visualization tools for linked geospatial data but was focused heavily on the use of SPARQL from the end-user. In the new approach, we re-designed and re-implemented Sextant, focused on creating a user-friendly application that would allow both domain experts and non-experts to take advantage of semantic web technologies, and convince them to adopt these technologies by presenting the benefits of the linked open geospatial Web through the use of Sextant.
