Description

Significant unregulated development is occurring in sensor devices, protocols and sensor networks especially in the areas of air and water quality monitoring and management where the focus has been on human health and exposure impacts. Satellite technology is well established as a means of deploying sensors. However, for monitoring of air and water we lack the interconnectivity of both in-situ and remote sensing devices that link to interoperable information systems. One reason for this deficiency is the lack of a sensor network infrastructure generic enough to support this interoperability and interconnectivity. This workshop will explore the architectural aspects of creating robust sensor networks including the aspects of the processing and visualisation of sensor-related information. The discussion will take into account topics like interoperability, self-organisation, network management and sensor service architectures. Candidate open geospatial architectures specified by European initiatives and research projects are taken as examples.
