Project Description

SENSORWEB HUB  /

SWH is a web data infrastructure for scientific research. It is a bottom-up collaborative initiative between different IBIMET-CNR research units that embrace the same approach for sharing and reuse of research data from low-cost sensors.

Info and Contacts
SensorwebHub [SWH] is an open source platform to facilitate access and sharing of experimental data from meteorological and environmental observation networks. Web sharing of environmental monitoring data allows timely information to be provided necessary for decision support systems. SWH manages agrometeorological, urban climate, indoor, weather, renewable energy data.

RESEARCH DATA & CITIZENS SENSORS

WHO

COLLABORATION & OPEN INNOVATION

The sharing of research data is a new challenge for the scientific community that may benefit from a large amount of information to manage and find solutions to environmental issues and sustainability in both agricultural and urban contexts.

Neogeography and the citizen as sensors approach, highlights that new data sources need a new set of tools and practices to collect, validate, categorize, and use/access the “crowdsourced” data, that integrate the datasets produced in the scientific field.

When the scientific community embraces the dimension of collaboration and sharing, access and re-use, in order to accept the open innovation approach, it should redesign and reshape the data management processes. The challenges of technological and cultural innovation, enabled by web 2.0 technologies, lead to the scenario where the sharing of structured and interoperable data will constitute the essential building block to set up a new paradigm of scientific research.

OPEN DATA ACCESS & REUSE

HOW

OPEN SOURCE & OGC STANDARDS

SWH infrastructure ensures access, management and preservation of data; it is a technical support for coordinated management of data and encourages reuse and collaboration.

SWH manages both mobile and fixed open source sensor platforms, to integrate the existing monitoring networks.
This infrastructure is currently focused on the following sensor data categories: Agrometeo, Meteo, Urban Climate, Renewable Energy, Indoor. Components are organized in typical client-server architecture and interact with the sensing process to the representation of the results to end-users. The Web Application enables the data stored in the GeoDB to be viewed and analyzed.
The interface is designed following Internet browsers specifications: visualization of collected data, tabular, chart and geographic map.
 The services for the dissemination of geo-referenced information adopt the OGC specifications.

INFRASTRUTTURA

Sensor Web Hub is an infrastructure for the viewing, management and sharing of data from non-conventional meteorological and environmental networks in real time. It can be used as a support for scientific research, but also as an infrastructure for all types of users who have a need to share monitoring data in restricted or open networks.

The flexibility of the platform allows custom-made projects to be created to respond to different user needs, both public and private.
