The ESIP EnviroSensing Collaboration Area was organized around the need to create resource guides and share deployment strategies for real-time sensor networks. The NSF EarthCube Integrative Activity called the X-DOMES (Cross-Domain Metadata EnviroSensing) Network is actively building tools and seeks to develop a community of stakeholders within the ESIP community to foster sensor metadata best practices that result in the creation of machine-harvestable, standards-based descriptions of how an observation came to be. The first half of the workshop is intended to guide participants in the creation of sensor-related vocabularies that include observable properties, sensing technologies, observational parameters and processing methods as spreadsheets and then to assist them in the registery of the content using the newly implemented ESIP-COR (Community Ontology Registry) or a registry within their domain, such as the MMI-ORR (Marine Metadata Interoperability - Ontology Registry & Repository). This will provide a resolvable resource (URLS) for each term which can be used in annotating web services (such as OGC-SWE SOS). The second half of the session enables participants to develop SensorML profiles for sensors within their domain, referencing the registered terms. This exercise prefaces X-DOMES planned work to engage sensor manufacturers to build machine-harvestable sensor descriptions, which will be also be registered so the content can be resolvable, discoverable and persist within the ESIP Enviro-Sensing community. As the participants assess the SensorML Editor/Viewer, we will develop a cross-domain approach that engages sensor manufacturers and sensor field operators. The main goal is to capture knowledge where it is best understood and provide the capability to fully-describe content to enable data quality assessment and automated quality control.
