Tools and training for sensor network establishment and management

Abstract

There is strong interest among LTER sites in the establishment and management of sensor networks and there is a need for coordinated training and tool sharing. Coincidentally, NCEAS is planning a training workshop on sensor tools within the Real-time Environment for Analytical Processing (REAP) project context. We propose a single LTER/NCEAS cost-shared training that will focus on software tools for managing sensor data. Introductory material on requirements for building a sensor platform and sensor management system will be presented. The workshop will include hands-on sessions and training on DataTurbine, Kepler, R, the CUAHSI Observations Data Model (ODM), and an introduction to the GCE Toolbox.
