Sensor data are currently increasingly available on the web through Sensor Web technology. Sensors are an important asset in crisis management situations. However, to make decisions sensor information is required. This information is extracted using geoprocesses provided by for instance Web Processing Services. This paper describes an approach to provide sensor information to ordinary users by integrating sensor data and geoprocesses into mass-market applications. The applicability of the approach is demonstrated by a risk management scenario. The software presented has been developed within the Geoprocessing Community of the 52°North initiative and is available through an Open Source license.
