IoT Management System in OGC SensorThings API Standard
11-29, 14:10–14:30 (Asia/Seoul), Seoul Archive

The OGC SensorThings API is one of the OGC API Standards introduced in 2016. Its primary goal is to standardize and provide a unified approach to managing and interacting with Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data within a geospatial context. This standardization is essential for applications that rely on location-based data, including environmental monitoring, smart cities, precision agriculture, and asset tracking.

Nowadays, there is an increasing adoption of IoT (Internet of Things) technology which facilitates the connection of devices to the cloud, making it more convenient to monitor information originating from these devices, thereby unlocking the value of incoming data over time. The OGC SensorThings API serves as an optimal choice for managing IoT data, enabling seamless interaction and analysis of observations.

In the context of the SensorThings API, an IoT device or system is conceptualized as a "Thing," which has a specific "Location" and can link to one or multiple "Datastreams." Each "Datastream" observes an individual "ObservedProperty" through a corresponding "Sensor," generating numerous "Observations." Each "Observation," measured from the "Sensor," pertains to a distinct "FeatureOfInterest." Collectively, these interconnected relationships establish a flexible and standardized approach for describing and modeling diverse sensing systems.

The SensorThings API contains a comprehensive Create-Read-Update-Delete (CRUD) endpoint, facilitating a user interface where users can effectively manage device data. To enhance convenience and facilitate streamlined management of device-related information, a management interface, whether in the form of a website or an application, significantly contributes to the ease of data management.
