Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are aiding water quality monitoring with support for real-time and remote quality measurements in terrain. Environmental monitoring portals receiving data from sensors have been a practice since a while among researchers. However, the Web portal introduced here is essentially an integrated portal since it supports modeling and management of both, the observational stream data on water quality coming from wireless sensors – dynamic data, as well as of the data describing the WSN itself, its devices and the corresponding site allocation data – static data. Access is given to a wide range of individuals, from water experts to WSN engineers, to general public. Experts' module infers statistics about water parameters given the experts' data and rules. The portal is further distinguished for its level of scalability: it allows adding with ease new components, like add certain new regulatory documents for water quality, and directly compare data measured by sensors with corresponding quality standards. The aim is to enrich the portal with semantics in future.

Wireless Sensor Networks represent an active scientific research field due to their importance in development of many applications, including environmental monitoring, healthcare, traffic control, military network systems (Khedo, Perseedoss & Mungur, 2010), and precision agriculture (Baggio, 2005). Moreover, environmental monitoring portals receiving data from sensors have also been a practice since a while among researchers.
