Working Group 3 – Development of a future cybernetic web of experimental structures


AIMS

WG3 will aim at developing and implementing cyber infrastructure to collect and wirelessly transmit to the Internet a fundamental set of forest and environmental measurements from the ESFONET sites. The cybernetic web will provide real-time access to environmental sensor data from established research sites to a single point of entry web site which allow apply visualization and outreach tools to engage researchers, resource managers, educators and the public with smart forest data.

 WG3 Tasks

  • discussion of the state-of-the-art technologies for the measurements of forest parameters linked to ”smartness” and fostering of its deployment in the ESFONET network;
  • identification of standardized cyber technology for collection, and wireless transmittal to the internet of, a foundational set of environmental measurements at ESFONET sites;
  • analysis of the near real-time access to high quality forest environmental sensor data from ESFONET sites to a single point of entry web site;
  • discussion about the visualization and outreach tools to engage researchers, resource managers, educators and the public with smart forests.
