Citizen Observatory Web (COBWEB)

COBWEB will leverage the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR). Concentrating initially on the Welsh Dyfi Biosphere Reserve, we will develop a citizens’ observatory framework, and then validate the work within the context of the UK National Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and internationally, within the WNBR; specifically, within Greek and German Reserves.

Sensor Web Enablement DWG

Chair(s):

Botts, Mike (Botts Innovative Research)

Group Description:

Introduction

OGC members are specifying interoperability interfaces and metadata encodings that enable real time integration of heterogeneous sensor webs into the information infrastructure. Developers will use these specifications in creating applications, platforms, and products involving Web-connected devices such as flood gauges, air pollution monitors, stress gauges on bridges, mobile heart monitors, Webcams, and robots as well as space and airborne earth imaging devices.

OGC Web Services, Phase 3

1. OWS-3 Overview

Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, OWS-3 participants worked collaboratively to extend the OGC baseline to enable an interoperable, multi-source decision support environment. The work addressed a rich set of requirements provided by OWS-3's sponsors. Sponsors include: BAE Systems, IONIC, GeoConnections (Canada), Lockheed Martin, MAGIC Services

Sensor Model Language (SensorML)

The primary focus of the Sensor Model Language (SensorML) is to provide a robust and semantically-tied means of defining processes and processing components associated with the measurement and post-measurement transformation of observations. This includes sensors and actuators as well as computational processes applied pre- and postmeasurement. The main objective is to enable interoperability, first at the syntactic level and later at the semantic level (by using ontologies and semantic mediation), so that sensors and processes can be better understood by machines, utilized automatically...
