SensorThings API and INSPIRE

  • General

    The INSPIRE Community Forum is now part of the INSPIRE helpdesk system, based on GitHub (, so please start there any new discussions.

    The current platform will remain available in read only mode in its current form and URL address until 31/01/2021, then its content will be archived and then published in a different URL which will be announced when it becomes available.

I'd like to bring our discussion on the utilization of the OGC SensorThings API within INSPIRE in the O&M cluster to your attention.
From our preliminary analysis, SensorThings could provide an interesting alternative to the currently used WFS and SOS services through its RESTful interface following the OASIS oData standard, while providing the data using JSON serialization, so could provide for better uptake.
If you're interested, please join our discussion at:
