Abstract

In recent years, large-scale sensor arrays and the vast data-sets they produce worldwide are being utilized, shared, and published by a rising number of researchers on an ever-increasing frequency. An increasing number of sensor web services are deployed to host and share the large volume of sensor data online. How to efficiently discover the sensor web resources and visualize different types of sensor data in a coherent environment becomes an important research question that is still not fully resolved. In this paper, we propose the Sensor Web PivotViewer system. By integrating the Geospatial Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Sensing (GeoCENS) cyber infrastructure, the Microsoft PivotViewer, and the Microsoft BingMaps, the proposed system fills in the missing software components for users to easily and intuitively discover and utilize the worldwide sensor web resources.
