Semantically-Enabled Sensor Plug & Play for the Sensor Web
TLDR
A Sensor Plug & Play infrastructure for the Sensor Web is introduced by combining semantic matchmaking functionality, a publish/subscribe mechanism underlying the SensorWeb, as well as a model for the declarative description of sensor interfaces which serves as a generic driver mechanism. Expand
Semantic Matchmaking & Mediation for Sensors on the Sensor Web
TLDR
This work introduces the current implementation of a rule system that supports complex mediation and mappings in the matching of sensors to Web services, and aims to achieve a real Plug & Play for the Sensor Web. Expand
StarFL – a modularised metadata language for sensor descriptions
TLDR
This work describes a new approach for defining sensor metadata, the Starfish Fungus Language (StarFL) model, which follows a more restrictive approach and incorporates concepts from the recently published Semantic Sensor Network Ontology to overcome the key issues users are experiencing with SensorML. Expand
Semantic mediation on the Sensor Web
TLDR
This work enables an automated integration of sensors and services on the Sensor Web, an infrastructure which enables the interoperable usage of sensor resources by providing services for discovery, access, tasking, as well as eventing & alerting. Expand
Geospatial IoT - The Need for Event-Driven Architectures in Contemporary Spatial Data Infrastructures
TLDR
This manuscript presents work in the field of event-driven architectures as part of spatial data infrastructures with a particular focus on sensor networks and the devices capturing in-situ measurements. Expand
Coupling sensor observation services and web processing services for online geoprocessing in water dam monitoring
TLDR
This paper presents an approach for integrating several geoprocessing components in the TaMIS water dam monitoring system developed with the Wupperverband, a regional waterbody authority in Germany. Expand
StarFL : a new metadata language for sensor descriptions : or : why do we need yet another metadata language for sensor descriptions
TLDR
This work describes a new approach for defining sensor metadata, the StarFL model, which follows a more restrictive approach and incorporates concepts from the recently published Semantic Sensor Network Ontology to overcome the key issues users are experiencing with SensorML. Expand
Towards Interactive Geodata Analysis through a Combination of Domain-Specific Languages and 3D Geo Applications in a Web Portal Environment
Urban planning processes affect a wide range of stakeholders including decision makers, urban planners, business companies as well as citizens. ICT-enabled tools supporting urban planning areExpand
Open Land Use Map
Open Land Use Map is an initiative that has been started by the Plan4business project and that will be extended as part of the SDI4Apps project in the future. This service aims to create an improvedExpand
Internet of Things Technologies for the Efficient Collection of Hydrological Measurement Data
TLDR
The applicability of Internet of Things technologies to enable a lightweight data collection workflow relying on the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol as well as the SensorThings API standard of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is discussed. Expand
