This project is solving the Database of Near Earth Objects challenge.
e-Observatory is a web application whose main purpose is to allow citizen astronomers to register their findings by using different tools. Each record is supposed to have information about the properties of a NEO (Near Earth Object) as well as include information about observations and their corresponding data. Each NEO record should also include some attached images showing the NEO from different views. A different web interface will be provided for other users to comment on somebody's findings as well as rate them.
In order to develop the application, I'm using Spring MVC + REST on the server side and MongoDB (the most popular NoSQL database) in order to store the data collected, as well as some jQuery widgets for the UI.
