Management of sensor data requires metadata to understand
the semantics of observations. While e-science researchers have high demands on metadata, they are selective in entering metadata. The claim in this paper is to focus on the essentials, i.e., the actual observations being described by location, time, owner, instrument, and measurement.
The applicability of this approach is demonstrated in two very different case studies.
