GeoSensorWeb Lab at the University of Calgary is a world-leading research lab in geospatial information systems and Internet of Things. Our vision is to distrup the silos of the Internet of Things and develop innovative algorithms, open standards, and software systems to realize the vision.
For example, Dr. Steve Liang, founder and director of the lab, is the working group chair and editor of the Open Geospatial Consortium SensorThings API. SensorThings API is the frst OGC standard designed specifically for the Internet of Things. We work closely with industry and government and our research sponsors include Microsoft Research, CAE, Lockheed Martin, NRCan, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, CANARIE, AITF, NSERC, etc. To furhter advancing our open IoT vision, some of us started SensorUp, an innovative startup provides world's first OGC SensorThings API software suite.
