Best Practices for SENSOR

Please take a moment to read the best practices when using SensorWeb: MOSAiC Best Practices for SENSOR

Workflow for creating new devices in SENSOR

The following workflow is defined for creation of devices in SensorWeb:

    1. Device Contact aka Device Editor collects Initial SensorWeb Information in Device Management List in the columns and contacts Chief Editors of his/her Team to initiate device in SensorWeb
      • Short Name: please choose a catchy and unique short name for your (device name and serial number, e.g. “HandCTD_6678”)
      • Platform: please choose a platform from the list that your device will be used on (e.g. Polarstern, Ice_Station, Polar5, …)
      • Individual Device-Editor, who will enter/edit all the details for the device. Everyone who will bring a device to MOSAiC is a potential device editor unless other workflows were defined in teams.
      • Chief-Editors (per Team), who will keep an overview of the devices for the team
    2. Chief-Editor sends Initial Device-Information to
      • Including following information about the Device Editor 
        • Name, Surname,  
        • Email
        • Institute
        • Telephone Nr.
        • City 
        • Country
    3. SensorWeb-Team creates device under specified platform and adds Device Editor and Initial Editor as Editors for device
      • Device Editor can now enter and edit all information  
        • exception: short name!
        • Reassign to different platform: need to contact initial editor and/or
      • Chief Editor
        • Collects information on devices to be entered in SensorWeb
        • monitor devices in SensorWeb for team to ensure best practices are followed
        • acts as first contact for questions on SensorWeb for team.
        • spreads knowledge on updates of SensorWeb in team.
    4. Device Editor enters SENSOR-URN and SENSOR-ID of device in SensorWeb in Device Management List in respective columns

The device management list can be found MS Teams MOSAiC_all/General/Groups/Data/Dataplanning_Lists/MOSAiC_Device_Data_Management_List_V2.xlsx

Please register and edit all your devices until July 31 2019!
