I am continuing to work on implementing 52N SOS instances to handle a number of different sensor configurations. One common configuration is a moored buoy with sensors deployed at different depths along the mooring cable, so we might have temperature@surface, temperature@1m, temperature@5m, etc.
I have so far been using InsertSensor to create a procedure for the buoy and then to create individual procedures for each sensor (temperature, pH, etc.) at the buoy, and for convenience creating and using result templates to add data. I could continue the pattern and add procedures temperature_1m, temperarature_5m, etc. However, this means that our catalog/discovery tool must recognize that each of these procedures represents temperature, which is extra work.
Is it feasible to set up something that would wrap all three temperature sets into a single temperature procedure? Are there examples available for inspection? If so, would result templates still work?
Re: Looking for Sensor example for vertical profile
in the development version of the 52N SOS (4.4.0) we have implemented
the om:parameter which can be used to store the information about the depth.
In the test client of this version you can find the
InsertObservation_Depth example which shows how to define the
om:parameter. But the om:parameter is not yet supported for the result
handling (result templates) and and the om:parameter is not yet filterable.
