data exchange and reproducibility are increasingly important for modern scientific research. [] Key Method We show how sos4R can bridge the gap between two communities in science: spatial statistical analysis and visualization on one side and the Sensor Web community on the other. sos4R enables R users to integrate (near real-time) sensor observations directly into R. Finally, we evaluate the functionality of sos4R. The software encapsulates the service's complexity with typical R function calls in a common…

Open Tools for Statistical Analysis in Spatial Data Infrastructures

An approach for integrating statistical analysis implemented in R into existing spatial data infrastructures using Open Source tools is outlined based on standards defined by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), in particular the OGC Web Processing Service (WPS).

Accessing environmental time series data in R from Sensor Observation Services with ease

This presentation demonstrates how the abstraction provided in the client library makes sensor observation data for accessible and further shows how sos4R allows the seamless integration of distributed observations data, i.e., across organisational boundaries, into transparent and reproducible data analysis workflows.

rnrfa: An R package to Retrieve, Filter and Visualize Data from the UK National River Flow Archive

The rnrfa package provides a set of functions to programmatically access, filter, and visualize NRFA data using simple R syntax, including examples using the main functions gdf() and cmr() for flow and rainfall data, respectively.

The design, development and validation of new data integration methods for mapping the extent of snow cover based on open access ground station measurements, remote sensing images, volunteer observer snow reports, and cross country ski track recordings from location-enabled mobile devices are presented.

An Observation Capability Metadata Model for EO Sensor Discovery in Sensor Web Enablement Environments

An actual application to flood emergency observation in the Yangtze River Basin in China is conducted, and the results indicate that sensor inquiry can accurately achieve fine-grained discovery of qualified EO sensors and obtain enriched observation capability information.

Prototype of a GIS web-based platform integrating sensor data geoprocessing for disaster management

Though in an early stage, a web-based prototype will be introduced as a proof of concept of the integration of those two concepts, which opens up new outlooks in the field of disaster management, by having near real-time sensor data flows linked on-demand to different geoprocessing services.

Geocomputation and Open Source Software: Components and Software Stacks

This chapter surveys the stack of software components available for geocomputation from these sources, looking in most detail at the R language and environment, and how OSGeo projects have been interfaced with it.

An Environmental Management Plan in Vavouto harbor ( New Caledonia ) with a statistical treatment displayed on dynamic maps

This paper presents an environmental monitoring tool to control and share results in real time as part of an environmental management plan (EMP) associated with a major dredging operation in the

Hello World: Introducing Spatial Data

Beyond creating and viewing maps, spatial data analysis is concerned with questions not directly answered by looking at the data themselves, which refer to hypothetical processes that generate the observed data.



gvSOS: A New Client for the OGC® Sensor Observation Service Interface Standard

GvSOS client module allows gvSIG users to interact with SOS servers, displaying the information gathered by sensors as a layer composed by features, and the software engineering development process followed to build the module is presented.

Discovery Mechanisms for the Sensor Web

An approach will be presented that was developed within the EU funded project “OSIRIS” that offers mechanisms to search for sensors, exploit basic semantic relationships, harvest sensor metadata and integrate sensor discovery into already existing catalogues.

The Omegahat Environment: New Possibilities for Statistical Computing

The Omegahat interactive language offers a continuity between the different programming tasks and levels via optional type checking and seamless access between the interpreted user language and the implementation language, Java, and lends itself to entirely new statistical computing paradigms.

Ogc® sensor web enablement:overview and high level achhitecture.

This paper provides a high level architecture and includes descriptions of the OGC sensor interface and encoding standards that have been approved or are soon to be approved.

GEOquery: a bridge between the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and BioConductor

A software tool is developed that allows access to the wealth of information within GEO directly from BioConductor, eliminating many the formatting and parsing problems that have made such analyses labor-intensive in the past.

Guest Editors' Introduction: Reproducible Research

The authors point to the success of the reproducible research discipline in increasing the reliability of computational research and reflect on the effort necessary for implementing this discipline in a research group and overcoming possible objections to it.

Caching and Distributing Statistical Analyses in R

The cacher package for R provides tools for caching statistical analyses and for distributing these analyses to others in an efficient manner and two examples of how the package can be used for reproducible research are provided.

Looking forward: Applying an ecological model web to assess impacts of climate change

Making it easier for models to communicate will increase their collective power and the breadth of questions they can address, while providing web access to their results will facilitate greater extraction of societal benefits by managers, policy makers, and the public.
