This extension allows coupling OGC Sensor Observation Service instances to ArcGIS. This makes it possible to load real-time as well as historic time-series data. Once the data has been downloaded, users are able to apply the full range of ArcGIS processing and visualization capabilities.
The ArcGIS SOS plug-in is the result of a joint project conducted by ESRI and 52°North. This project started within the Climate Challenge Integration Plugfest (CCIP) at the FOSS4G 2009 conference which took place in October 2009.
At the moment the ArcGIS SOS plug-in is in its beta testing phase. As soon as a stable release is available we will put further download instructions on this web site.
Please note: The SOS Extension requires the presence of the Arc Hydro tool set within your ArcGIS installation.
