2008 IEEE Fourth International Conference on eScience (2008)
Dec. 7, 2008 to Dec. 12, 2008
The Sensor Web is a distributed sensing system in which information is shared globally. The emergence of this technology will enable the integration of different sensing platforms with temporal and spatial variability. This has a potential to revolutionise hydrological monitoring and forecasting. Our project will establish a Sensor Web test bed in the South Esk River Catchment, which is located in the North East of Tasmania. The test bed will allow us to evaluate the emerging Open Geospatial Consortium standards and specifications for Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) and provide a research platform for developing next-generation hydrological and water resource management tools. We intend to use short-term river flow forecasting as our use case for the SWE test bed.
