Esri  -  ArcGIS Server for SOS and SOE extension

Time frame: 07.2011 to 02.2012

Website: n/a

Description: The design and implementation of a Sensor Observation Service (SOS) for ArcGIS Server and a geodatabase model for O&M and sensor data which allows the European Environmental Agency (EEA) to fulfill its needs for sensor data access. EEA integrates the solution into its BizTalk environment and further extends the ArcGIS Server Sensor Observation Server through a SWE Adapter to adhere to OGC's SWE specifications. EEA and EIONET contributors will implement the ArcGIS based SWE adapter as a community process. Sensor data will be accessible not only through the ArcGIS Server Sensor Observation Service, but through the whole range of REST, OGC and SOAP interfaces that ArcGIS Server provides.

Sensor Web Enablement Services

Time frame: 11.2011 to 05.2012

Website: n/a

The aim of this project is to provide Rijkswaterstaat with services concerning a Sensor Web Enablement proof of concept. Rijkswaterstaat would like to evaluate the use of the Sensor Web standards within their measurement network infrastructure. This includes several aspects:

  • Transfer of sensor data and metadata between data loggers and central database systems through the transactional Sensor Observation Service (SOS) operations
  • Provision of access to sensor data through the SOS interface (SOS wrapper for the MMML service (a specific web service interface of Rijkswaterstaat))
  • Investigation of the Sensor Event Service interface regarding its suitability for the Rijkswaterstaat use cases and identification of potential needs for improvement

Customization of a Sensor Observation Service

Time frame: 11.2011 to 01.2012

Website: n/a

The goal of this project is the development of a customised Sensor Observation Service (SOS) version that provides standardised access to data collected in a database of the Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung GmbH (UFZ). For this purpose the 52°North SOS implementation is extended to work together with the UFZ data model and the existing (non-spatial) Oracle database.

Description: 52°North is a subcontractor of ATKINS Danmark. The aim of the project is to support the European Environment Agency (EEA) in adapting OGC SWE specifications (i.e. OGC SOS) within their infrastructure. An important driving factor of this project is to facilitate the provision of data by member states to the EEA through standardized interfaces.
