IEEE-1451 and OGC Sensor Web Enablement
(OGC SWE) define standard protocols to operate
instruments, including methods to calibrate, configure,
trigger data acquisition, and retrieve instrument data
based on specified temporal and geospatial criteria. These
standards also provide standard ways to describe instrument
capabilities, properties, and data structures produced
by the instrument. These standard operational protocols
and descriptions enable observing systems to manage very
diverse instruments as well as to acquire, process, and
interpret their data in a uniform and automated manner.
We refer to this property as “instrument interoperability”.
