This document specifies the interface to a Sensor Observation Service, hereinafter “SOS”. The SOS is one of a family of standards and specifications that make up the OGC Sensor Web Enablement activity, hereinafter “SWE”. Currently, the other specifications that pertain to SWE are Sensor Model Language (SensorML), Observations and Measurements (O&M), Sensor Planning Service (SPS), Transducer Markup Language (TML), Sensor Alert Service (SAS), and Web Notification Service (WNS). Work on the predecessor to SOS, Sensor Collection Service (SCS), began during the OGC Web Services 1.1 (OWS 1.1) testbed initiative and focused mainly on the interoperable interface requirements for in-situ sensors and sensor networks. During the OWS 1.2 initiative, the SCS effort focused on the requirements for dynamic remote sensors (and sensor networks) and defined a more explicit interface employing SensorML. The SOS builds on previous SCS efforts and also incorporates an interface employing TML. .....
