Web-based Admin Interface
The easiest way to use SensorHub is via the web-based interface. However, if something is not available from the UI, you can always edit the configuration file manually (See section Configuration File).
When SensorHub is running, you can connect to the following URL to access the administration page:
This admin page allows you to do the following actions:
- Add and configure new sensors (when proper driver was previously installed)
- Add and configure sensor data storage
- Add and configure SOS and SPS service instances
- Expose data streams and/or storage through SOS
- Expose sensor commands through SPS
For more details, see the Web Admin Interface Manual.
You can also look at our other demo clients that are running online directly from our GitHub Demo Site
OpenSensorHub's configuration is centralized in a single file. It is in JSON format so it can be easily viewed or modified in any text editor.
This file contains a list of module's configuration that are loaded in order when starting SensorHub.
OpenSensorHub includes implementations of standard web service interfaces from the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) initiative.
Below are topics giving more information about these SWE services:
(*) Modules are loaded in order except if a module needs another module to start. In this case, the dependent module is loaded as needed by the calling module.
The internal state of each module is saved in a subfolder of the
modules folder whose name is the module's local ID. This folder can contain:
state.txtfile containing a list of key/value pairs corresponding to state properties that the module has saved
- Zero or more
.datfiles that contain arbitrary data saved by the module
