lecture: Sensor Web for Oceanology

Event large

In the marine community, observation data sets are a critical input for many scientific questions. Thus, significant investments are made in equipment and data acquisition technology. To ensure that the collected data is efficiently used by a larger number of researchers, the interoperable sharing of observation data is getting more attention in recent time.
This presentation introduces open source Sensor Web components from several European projects such as NeXOS, FixO3, BRIDGES and ODIP II that cover different requirements for Sensor Web technology in marine applications.
On the one hand there are server-side tools such as the 52°North Sensor Observation Service which facilitate the publication and download of marine observations. On the other hand this is complemented by tools such as the 52°North JavaScript SOS Client, which offers a lightweight approach to explore and visualise observation data sets generated by mobile (e.g. research vessels) as well as stationary sensors (e.g. buoys).
In our presentation we will introduce the basic principles of an interoperable Sensor Web infrastructure for Oceanology as well as show how this infrastructure can be implemented using the open source software components of 52°North.
