Observations and Measurements (O&M)

Observations & Measurements (OM) provides general models and schema for supporting the packaging of observations from sensor system and sensor-related processing. The model supports metadata about the Observation, as well as the ability to link to the procedure (i.e. sensors plus processing) that created the observation, thus, providing an indication of the lineage of the measurements.

The O&M Observation XML encoding is very general in the sense that the result can be packaged in any structure specified in XML. A Common Observation specification uses the data components defined in SWE Common and allows for efficient packing of either ASCII or binary blocks, or data structures based on standard MIME-types (e.g. JPEG, J2K, etc.).
