Design and Development of Interoperable Cloud Sensor Services to Support Citizen Science Projects
Citizen Observatories are becoming an increasingly popular source of input data in many scientific domains. During the recent EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online, Simon Jirka (52°North) presented the ideas behind the European H2020 project Cos4Cloud (Co-designed citizen observatories for the EOS-Cloud). The project aims at providing re-usable services for setting up Citizen Observatories based on the European Open Science (EOS) Cloud. In particular, it will use interoperability standards such as the the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Sensor Observation Service (SOS), SensorThings API and Observations and Measurements (O&M).
