Planet Data

Millions of sensors around the globe currently collect avalanches of data about our environment. This information has the potential of being included in the Semantic Sensor Web using ontologies such as the Semantic Sensor Network Ontology (described in the Semantic Sensor Network XG Final Report ).

Emergency Response Services could draw on continuously updated sensor data.
Weather is a key component of many potential linked data applications (planner services etc).
