Observing Systems (NERACOOS) Sensor Observation Service (SOS)
The OCEANS IE -- formally approved as an OGC Interoperability
Experiment in December 2006 -- engages data managers and scientists
in the Ocean-Observing community to advance their understanding and
application of various OGC specifications, solidify demonstrations
for Ocean Science application areas, harden software
implementations, and produce candidate OGC Best Practices documents
that can be used to inform the broader ocean-observing community.

Because of the nature of SOS requests, requests for data MUST
include constraints for the longitude, latitude, time, and/or
station_id variables.

Initiators: SURA (lead), Texas A&M University, MBARI, GoMOOS and

Specific goals:
* Compare Sensor Observation Service (SOS) from the OGC's Sensor
Web Enablement (SWE) initiative to the Web Feature Service (WFS)
as applied to ocean data in a variety of data formats including
text files, netCDF files, relational databases, and possibly
native sensor output; (see Experiment #1 for details)
* Make use of semantic mediation via Semantic Web technologies to
allow plurality of identification for source types (platforms
and sensors) and phenomena types;
* Test aggregation services and caching strategies to provide
efficient queries;
* Explore possible enhancements of THREDDS server, so that THREDDS
resident data sources might be made available via SOS or WFS;
