The sos4R package provides simple yet powerful access to OGC Sensor Observation Service instances. The package supports both encapsulation and abstraction from the service interface for novice users as well as powerful request building for specialists. sos4R is motivated by the idea to close the gap between the Sensor Web and tools for (geo-)statistical analyses. It implements the core profile of the SOS specification and supports temporal, spatial, and thematical filtering of observations. This document briefly introduces the SOS specification. The package's features are explained extensively: exploration of service metadata, request building with filters, function exchangeability, result data transformation. The package is published under GPL 2 license within the geostatistics community of 52 • North Initiative for Geospatial Open Source Software.
