Abstract: This article provides a high-level overview of and architecture for the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards activities that focus on sensors, sensor networks, and a concept called the “Sensor Web”. This OGC work area is known as Sensor Web Enablement (SWE).


This article has been condensed from "OGC® Sensor Web Enablement: Overview And High Level Architecture," an OGC White Paper by Mike Botts, PhD, George Percivall, Carl Reed, PhD, and John Davidson which can be downloaded from http://www.opengeospatial.org/pt/15540. Readers interested in greater technical and architecture detail can download and read the OGC SWE Architecture Discussion Paper titled “The OGC Sensor Web Enablement Architecture” (OGC document 06-021r1, http://www.opengeospatial.org/pt/14140).


Keywords: Sensor web, OGC, sensor model language (SensorML), Sensor web enablement (SWE), observations and measurements (O&M), Sensor observation service (SOS), Sensor planning service (SPS), TransducerML (TML), Sensor alert service (SAS), Web notification service (WNS), IEEE-1451.
