Standards for sensor data

One of the aims of SenseOCEAN is to ensure that the developed sensor package is low cost and mass producible. To achieve this, common systems must be adopted across the range of sensors including data management systems.  

BODC (British Oceanographic Data Centre, NERC) have been working on the standardisation of sensor metadata to enable ‘plug and play’ sensor integration; SenseOCEAN will implement the OGC’s Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards.  The poster below gives more information on the standards and the work that BODC is doing.
