Transforming Sensor Data to RDF based on SSN Ontology
TLDR
A XML-based mapping language is designed which is used to annotate sensors and sources and an algorithm is designed to transform sensor data to RDF conforming to SSN ontology, based on the predefined SASML mapping file.
What Now and Where Next for the W3C Semantic Sensor Networks Incubator Group Sensor Ontology
This short paper accompanies the keynote given at SSN'11. It reviews the initiation of the Semantic Sensor Networks Incubator Group and the ontology produced. Also, examples of the use of the
Enrichment of Semantic Sensor Network Ontology: Description Logics based approach
TLDR
The novelty of the proposed research work is to understand and represent the inherent knowledge of SSN ontology using DLs, which facilitates mathematical proof system.
The modular SSN ontology: A joint W3C and OGC standard specifying the semantics of sensors, observations, sampling, and actuation
TLDR
An overview of the SOSA/SSN ontologies is given and the rationale behind key design decisions are discussed, reporting on the differences between the new SSN ontology presented here and its predecessor [9] developed by the W3C Semantic Sensor Network Incubator group (the SSN-XG).
Weather data publication on the LOD using SOSA/SSN ontology
TLDR
This paper presents a RDF dataset on meteorological measurements, based on the new version of the Semantic Sensor Network ontology (SSN), which integrates the Sensor, Observation, Sample, and Actuator pattern (SOSA).
The SOSA / SSN Ontology : A Joint W 3 C and OGC Standard Specifying the Semantics of Sensors , Observations , Actuation , and Sampling
TLDR
An overview of the SOSA/SSN ontologies is given and the rationale behind key design decisions are discussed, reporting on the differences between the new SSN ontology presented here and its predecessor [10] developed by the W3C Semantic Sensor Network Incubator group (the SSN-XG).
The Schema Editor of OpenIoT for Semantic Sensor Networks
TLDR
A Schema Editor is presented that provides an intuitive web interface for defining new types of sensors, and concrete instances of them, using the SSN ontology as the core model.
Extension of the Semantic Sensor Network Ontology for Wireless Sensor Networks: The Stimulus-WSNnode-Communication Pattern
TLDR
This paper will first integrate the different concepts related to WSN in the SSN ontology and then the resulting ontology is used, called Wireless Semantic Sensor Network ontology, in an agri-environmental scenario to illustrate the interest of the approach.
A Validation Tool for the W3C SSN Ontology based Sensory Semantic Knowledge
TLDR
The tool allows ontologies and linked-data descriptions to be validated against the concepts and properties used in the W3C SSN model and can be used to create core ontologies that have higher level interoperability across different systems and various application domains.
I2oTology - Tracking-Oriented Ontology
TLDR
The I2oTology is presented, which is a tracking-oriented ontology aimed at tracking smart objects based on some IoT-Lite classes and there are some classes, properties and situations to be tested to know how much the ontology is right.

The Stimulus-Sensor-Observation Ontology Design Pattern and its Integration into the Semantic Sensor Network Ontology
TLDR
The core classes and relationships forming the pattern are discussed in detail and are aligned to the DOLCE foundational ontology to improve semantic interoperability and clarify the underlying ontological commitments.
A Survey of the Semantic Specification of Sensors
TLDR
The state of the art for the semantic specification of sensors, one of the fundamental technologies in the semantic sensor network vision, is reviewed.
Exposing real world information for the web of things
TLDR
The paper addresses challenges of efficiently collecting data and meta-data from sensors and publishing it following the linked data principles, thus contributing to the Web of Things.
A RESTful proxy and data model for linked sensor data
TLDR
This paper presents a Linked Data model and a RESTful proxy for OGC's Sensor Observation Service to improve integration and inter-linkage of observation data for the Digital Earth.
Semantic Sensor Web
TLDR
The semantic sensor Web (SSW) proposes that sensor data be annotated with semantic metadata that will both increase interoperability and provide contextual information essential for situational knowledge.
Reasoning about Sensors and Compositions
TLDR
The paper describes the OWL ontology, presents two example sensor descriptions and shows how standard reasoning and querying techniques can be used to perform tasks including classification and composition.
A Functional Ontology of Observation and Measurement
TLDR
An ontology of observation and measurement is proposed, which models the relevant information processes independently of sensor technology, and establishes the ontological basis for these as well as other extensions.
Semantic Enablement for Spatial Data Infrastructures
TLDR
Instead of developing new semantically enabled services from scratch, this work proposes to create profiles of existing services that implement a transparent mapping between the OGC and the Semantic Web world, and points out how to combine SDI with linked data.
A Semantically Enabled Service Architecture for Mashups over Streaming and Stored Data
TLDR
This paper proposes a generic service architecture to satisfy the requirements that uses semantic annotations to support well-informed interactions between the services and presents the SemSor- Grid4Env realisation of the architecture and its capabilities in the context of the example application.
Publishing Linked Sensor Data
TLDR
This paper describes a linked-data platform to publish sensor data and link them to existing resource on the semantic Web, called Sense2Web, which supports flexible and interoperable descriptions and provide association of different sensor data ontologies to resources described on the Semantic Web and the Web of data.
