ENORASIS: Easily manage and dispatch your sensor data with istSOS


istSOS ( is an OGC SOS server implementation of the SOS service entirely written in Python for exchanging XML requests and responses. istSOS allows for managing and dispatching observations from monitoring sensors according to the Sensor Observation Service standard. The workshop will present the latest software enhancements (version 2.1) that includes a Web graphical user Interface that allows for easing daily operations like service administration or data manipulation. It relies on a RESTful Web API interface wrapping SOS functionalities facilitating jobs scripting for administration automating.

The workshop will cover the following sections:
• Introduction to the standard and to istSOS
• installation of the software
• set-up of the service
• registering new sensors
• inserting observations
• manipulating observations (load, edit, delete)
• validation of observations (qualityIndex)
• create virtual sensors (virtual procedures)
• dynamic aggregation
• istSOS RESTful API
• mapping sensors and data with OpenLayers 3
• plotting observations on the Web
• data analysis using Web Processing Service
