Next generations of spatial information infrastructures call for more dynamic service composition, more sources of information, as well as stronger capabilities for their integration. Sensor networks have been identified as a major data provider for such infrastructures, while Semantic Web technologies have demonstrated their integration capabilities. Most sensor data is stored and accessed using the Observations & Measurements (O&M) standard of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) as data model. However, with the advent of the Semantic Sensor Web, work on an ontological model gained importance within Sensor Web Enablement (SWE). The ongoing paradigm shift to Linked Sensor Data complements this attempt and also adds interlinking as a new challenge. In this demonstration paper, we briefly present a Linked Data model and a RESTful proxy for OGC’s Sensor Observation Service (SOS) to improve integration and inter-linkage of observation data.
