This paper addresses the discovery of sensors within the OGC Sensor Web Enablement framework. Whereas services like the OGC Web Map Service or Web Coverage Service are already well supported through catalogue services, the field of sensor networks and the according discovery mechanisms is still a challenge. The focus within this article will be on the use of existing OGC Sensor Web components for realizing a discovery solution. After discussing the requirements for a Sensor Web discovery… Expand
INTEGRATING THE OGC SENSOR WEB ENABLEMENT FRAMEWORK INTO THE OGC CATALOGUE
The Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) architecture of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has reached a broad acceptance. However, although the core specifications reached a mature state, the integrationExpand
Metadata Harvesting and Registration in a Geospatial Sensor Web Registry
TLDR
This article proposes an incremental harvesting approach, which can harvest the updated metadata efficiently in the Sensor Web environment and is provided to demonstrate the applicability of the approach. Expand
Interaction patterns for bridging the gap between sensor networks and the Sensor Web

TLDR
Five fundamental interaction patterns between the Sensor Web and sensor networks are identified by introducing an intermediary layer, prototypically implemented using Twitter, which bridge the gap between the two distinct layers and are essential for enabling future sensor plug & play within the sensor Web.

A Semantic Registry Method Using Sensor Metadata Ontology to Manage Heterogeneous Sensor Information in the Geospatial Sensor Web
TLDR
The results of GEOSENSOR-SSRS experiments show that the proposed semantic registry method can be used to enable sharing in an open distributed sensor network as well as to promote accuracy and efficiency of discovery. Expand
Discovering Sensor Services with Social Network Analysis and Expanded SQWRL Querying
TLDR
This work presents a new discovering approach that is based on a novel sensor metadata model compliant with SWE standards, where sensors' descriptions are referenced to a common semantic reference frame to support resolution of semantic heterogeneities. Expand
Distributed semantic sensor web architecture
TLDR
This paper analyzes the requirements of semantic web of things and proposes the semantic sensor web service environment to provide user centric context-aware semantic web service through the semantic sensors web platform. Expand
Developing Registries for the Semantic Sensor Web using stRDF and stSPARQL (short paper)
TLDR
Strabon is presented, a storage and query evaluation module for stRDF/stSPARQL for the architecture of the EU FP7 project SemsorGrid4Env and it is shown how to use Strabon to implement a semantic registry. Expand
A Distributed Middleware Based on Semantic Web Service for Sensor Web
Due to the rapid development of computing and communication technologies, the capacity of the microprocessor chip is becoming stronger with a smaller size and a lower price. The increasingExpand
New Generation Sensor Web Enablement
TLDR
The recent developments of the new generation of the Sensor Web Enablement specification framework are illustrated and related to other emerging concepts such as the Web of Things and point out challenges and resulting future work topics for research on Sensor Web enablement. Expand
Facilitating Sensor Deployment, Discovery and Resource Access Using Embedded Web Services
TLDR
This paper describes a novel self-organization solution to facilitate the deployment of sensor networks and enable the discovery, end-to-end connectivity and service usage of these newly deployed sensor nodes. Expand

Challenges in Building a Portal for Sensors World-Wide
SensorMap is a portal web site for real-time realworld sensor data. SensorMap allows data owners to easily make their data available on the map. The platform also transparently provides mechanisms toExpand
Sensor Metadata Management and Its Application in Collaborative Environmental Research
TLDR
An attempt is made to bridge the gap between data management and semantic annotation in a user friendly, easily deployable system for gathering sensor metadata and capturing semantics behind higher level data processing steps. Expand
Ontology‐based retrieval of geographic information
TLDR
This paper presents an approach to ontology‐based GI retrieval that contributes to solving existing problems of semantic heterogeneity and hides most of the complexity of the required procedure from the requester. Expand
Sensor Standards: Overview and Experiences
TLDR
A subset of the various sensor standards is explored, and the experiences in attempting to integrate some of these standards for the purposes of developing an autonomic context manager are related. Expand
Handling Locations in Search Engine Queries
This paper proposes simple techniques for handling place references in search engine queries, an important aspect of geographical information retrieval. We address not only the detection, but alsoExpand
Middleware to support sensor network applications
TLDR
MiLAN, a new middleware that allows applications to specify a policy for managing the network and sensors, but the actual implementation of this policy is effected within MiLAN, is described and its effectiveness is shown through the design of a sensor-based personal health monitor. Expand
