The lack of shared infrustructure and standardisations between observations has made it difficult to discover and consume resources from multiple providers in order to automate intelligent processes, such as measurements cross-validation , data/services mash-up, and personalised knowledge representation based on intelligent processing of distributed measurement data. In other words, it isolates important data streams and intensifies the existing problem of too much data and not enough knowledge. On the other hand, Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) in Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) aims to enable real-time integration of heterogeneous sensor observations into the Web infrastructure so that data can be served through standard interfaces. NERC-NOCS is aiming to tackle this problem with a semantic web infrustructure that integrates the ever maturing semantic web technologies in W3C as well as SWE standards in OGC. These will allow people and programs to semantically describe their resources (sensor, measuring parameters, datasets and SWE services, etc) with an aim to facilitate their future reuse and interoprobability in the context of W3C and OGC.
