Hi Chris,

Thanks for this info. I can see this project adding value to many research bids that colleagues are working on.  In addition to Charlie's NSF bid (and congrats to Charlie for getting green signal from NSF to submit full proposal), there are also H2020 bids that European colleagues are planning  in Urban, Environmental themes.

So we will be in contact on this.

Best wishes,

Hi Mike and Alex,
I wonder whether you think it would be valuable and appropriate to include OpenSensorHub on OSGeo-Live?

Would you consider OpenSensorHub mature enough to be considered?

There is a bit of work involved in getting a project into OSGeo-Live, but hopefully the marketing value provided makes it worth the effort. More details here:

I thought the GeoForAll community might be interested in tracking a new FOSS4G project named OpenSensorHub (www.opensensorhub.org<http://www.opensensorhub.org>; https://github.com/sensiasoft/sensorhub).  It is a brand new implementation of the Open Geospatial Consortium Sensor Web Enablement (OGC SWE) architecture in Jetty, which can be deployed on Androids, ARM processing boards, and in the Cloud.  It is the creation of Dr. Mike Botts (creator of SensorML), Alex Robin, and their team.  Mike and Alex have, for years, maintained the reference implementation for the OGC SWE architecture in the open source, but never as a community project.  This has now changed.  So, if you are interested in mashing up geospatial sensors of all kinds into your geospatial applications at your GeoForAll labs, this might be of interest to you.  Also, if you are interested in becoming a core contributor, the links are on the page.

I think that this is a pretty cool evolution in OGC SWE and in how we think about mainstream open source geo.
