Implementation benefits Sensors are currently the largest contributor of data in the geo-spatial system. The OGC Sensor Observation Service (SOS) allows the aggregation of readings from live, in-situ and remote sensors. OGC SOS provides the client with the capability to discover or bind with individual sensors, sensor platforms, or networked constellations of sensors.
Products An open source implementation of the SOS service interface is available from 52° North, 52N Sensor Observation Service (SOS) 4.0.
