Description: A presentation of the current status of a Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) based “Sensor Web” and a future perspective. As an example an application will be presented that integrates sensor data with data from an existing spatial data infrastructure.

The Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) of frameworks has been around for almost ten years. The goal of the SWE is to enable the integration of sensors and sensor data into existing spatial data infrastructures. This presentation will look at in what extent this goal of the SWE framework has been achieved. Besides presenting the current state of SWE also a future perspective will presented. This future perspective is based on a series of interview with leading organizations in the adaption and usage of SWE standards in the Netherlands. From this future perspective, potential use cases will be presented for the integration of sensor data with existing spatial data infrastructures. One of these use cases will be presented as a functional open source application.
