R & D Project Name: SensorBay

Collaboration: GeoConnections

Project Description: 

SensorBay was a GeoConnections-supported project for the development of innovative CGDI technologies. This project consolidated and made discoverable a community of sensors in, on and around Placentia Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador. Under this project, Compusult's Web Enterprise Suite was enhanced to support the OGC Sensor Web Enablement initiative and provided the following Web-based services: Sensor Observation Service (SOS), Sensor Planning Service (SPS) and Sensor Alert Service (SAS).

High schools, private sector organizations and government agencies collaborated to make the combined sensor data available via the CGDI. SensorBay allows anyone with a stake in the environment of the Placentia Bay region to benefit from the applications and information that a community of sensors offers. It focused on a large marine area and its community needs as related to fishing, industrial development, environmental monitoring/management and safety. It also provided direct access to hydrological, water quality, oceanographic, meteorological and other sensors deployed on fixed and mobile platforms.
