Weather 2017 with SOSA ontology

Weather 2017 is the providing of RDF data about one of the meteorological stations that Irstea owns in its experimental farm at Montoldre. A set of data collected between january and july 2017 is available. It uses the new Semantic Sensor Network Ontology, called (and prefixed) sosa. We also reused some specific ontologies:

  • To reference weather phenomena, the sweet ontology is reused.
  • The Climate and Forecast thesaurus is reused directly to describe property of weather phenomena.
  • The unit are described by the QUDT ontology.
  • The sensor are described by the AWS ontology.
  • The location of the weather station is described by the LOCN vocabulary and the geosparql ontology.

This was done for the same station with data callected from years 2010 to 2015, using the old Semantic Sensor Network Ontology and is available here.
