During a recent meeting at the Joint Research Institute (JRC) in Ispra, 52°North's Simon Jirka explained how Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) technology makes it possible to use heterogenous observation data within spatial data infrastructures and especially the INSPIRE context.
The presentation took place during a project meeting at the JRC. The joint project aims to expand the 52°North SOS to serve observation data, represented in accordance with INSPIRE data models. On the second day of the meeting there was a short introductory session about Sensor Web technology for interested JRC staff members. After a short introduction to SWE, Simon Jirka presented the 52°North SOS and enhancements for INSPIRE as well as Sensor Web clients. Examples of their implementations in the projects NeXOS and GEOWOW accentuated the use of the SWE technology. The lecture also included presentations by JRC, BRGM, as well as UBA AT/AIT.
