For SensorWeb to be relevant, we believe that any of its data and assets can be no further away than two degress of separation from anyone in the world. This does assume that those users would be from trusted domains and would have been granted the proper permissions from their organizations. We are coining this our SWE "Bacon" number or Two. So, you are doing SWE? What is your Bacon number?
St Louis, Mar 28, 2008
Just completed a full week of OGC meetings in St Louis. This is the conclusion of OWS-5 (OGC Web Services Interoperability Demo #5) with more than 30 participants.
The NASA SensorWeb is deeply involved in Earth Observation, Natural Resources & Environment. We presented our current ROA-based architecture used to support many pilots and operational demonstrations.

Great article in Goddard Tech Trends this month. “Using the Internet to cross-link and Task Earth-Observing Sensors”. This is a wonderful follow-up to our interoperability effort with OWS-5 and our GEOSS Pilot Program.
7 - 10 May 2007 Doubletree Hotel Sonoma Wine Country Rohnert Park, California.
Here are the PDF slides of the presentation… paper should be available soon too. There was a lot of interest in UAVs and Spacecraft collaboration for WildFire Management.
