Sensor Web Developments for the Wupperverband
Supporting the Wupperverband’s Sensor Web infrastructure
The Wupper River catchment area covers an area of 813 square kilometers in Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia. The Wupperverband (Wupper Association), responsible for water management in this area, operates a comprehensive network of water monitoring stations that deliver a broad range of hydrological and meteorological parameters.
For more than ten years, the Wupperverband has been operating Sensor Web components to ensure an efficient data management and internal as well as external data exchange. These include a large database for managing the collected observation data, the 52°North Sensor Observation Service implementation, the 52°North Sensor Web REST-API and a customized version of the Helgoland Sensor Web Viewer.
52°North supports the Wupperverband in maintaining and advancing this Sensor Web infrastructure. We carry out regular updates of the Sensor Web components as well as selected tasks to customize or extend the software modules used.
In 2021, our activities focused on completing the updated Helgoland Sensor Web Viewer. We supported performance optimization of the Sensor Web Server and its underlying database. Our team also continued investigation of Sensor Web access control mechanisms.
