There is strong interest among LTER sites in the establishment and
management of sensor networks and there is a need for coordinated
training and tool sharing. Coincidentally, NCEAS is planning a training
workshop on sensor tools within the Real-time Environment for Analytical
Processing (REAP) project context. We propose a single LTER/NCEAS
cost-shared training that will focus on software tools for managing
sensor data. Introductory material on requirements for building a sensor
platform and sensor management system will be presented. The workshop
will include hands-on sessions and training on DataTurbine, Kepler, R,
the CUAHSI Observations Data Model (ODM), and an introduction to the GCE
