The final aim was to propose solutions on how Citizen Science data could be integrated in the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). The solution is necessarily a combination of technical and networking components, being the first ones the focus of this work. The applications of international geospatial standards in current Citizen Science and citizen observatory projects to improve interoperability and foster innovation is one of the main tasks in the IE.
The main result of the activity was to demonstrate that Sensor Observing Services can be used for Citizen Science data (as proposed in the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Sensor Web Enablement for Citizen Science (SWE4CS) Discussion Paper) by implementing SWE4CS in several clients and servers that have been combined to show Citizen Science observations. In addition, an authentication server was used to create a federation between three projects. This federated approach is part of the proposed solution for GEOSS that can be found in the last chapter. Many open issues have been identified and are expected to be addressed in the second phase of the experiment, including the use of a definitions server.
