Sensor Web (“What is a sensor Web” … link to technologies page describing it) infrastructures are setup to access real-time data observed by sensors. Thereby, sensors range from simple weather stations over satellites to complex ‘virtual’ sensors such as simulations. The Sensor Web also provides means to task and control such sensors, as well as to retrieve events and alerts triggered through sensors.
All of the Sensor Web’s functionalities are provided in an interoperable way. The services implement standardized interfaces developed by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and its initiative.
All software is hosted at GitHub
