Societal benefits that accrue from earth observation information pertain to disaster mitigation, health, energy, climate, water, weather, ecosystems, agriculture and biodiversity. Viewed as an advanced spatial data infrastructure, the sensor web combines data from multiple sensors and sensor networks to provide feedback to users and other sensors. In collaboration with local and international researchers, information and communications technology (ICT) specialists at the CSIR are researching technologies for integrating the sensor web with scientific workflows.
