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…Expand
Accessing environmental time series data in R from Sensor Observation Services with ease
TLDR
This presentation demonstrates how the abstraction provided in the client library makes sensor observation data accessible and shows how sos4R allows the seamless integration of distributed observations data, i.e., across organisational boundaries, into transparent and reproducible data analysis workflows.

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
Open Tools for Statistical Analysis in Spatial Data Infrastructures
Statistical analysis is performed with dedicated tools and software. A prominent example is the R software for statistical computing. We outline an approach for integrating statistical analysisExpand
Leveraging Container Technologies in a GIScience Project: A Perspective from Open Reproducible Research
TLDR

An Observation Capability Metadata Model for EO Sensor Discovery in Sensor Web Enablement Environments
TLDR
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. Expand
Prototype of a GIS web-based platform integrating sensor data geoprocessing for disaster management
TLDR
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. Expand
