We examine how the Liberty Alliance framework for a privacy-enabled Business to Business (B2B) network of interoperating services called a 'Circle of Trust' (CoT) can be leveraged to monitor activity across the entire network for the purposes of safeguarding and improving services. A proposed Audit Trail Service (ATS) is analysed as a first step in monitoring activity within a CoT. Then, a proposed data collection service is analysed as a mechanism for systematically correlating and analysing consumer activity and content usage on an individual and aggregate basis. The analysis is motivated and illustrated through an information-rich e-commerce scenario.

Ice warning systems, Austria - AMS Helfenberg - Federal State of Upper Austria - Case Study
Lufft UMB-technology in state-wide winter maintenance monitoring network. The Federal Government of Upper Austria operates a state-wide monitoring network of approximately 100 ice warning stations. Lufft UMB technology is used as part of an upgrading and expansion process. So far, more than 50 UMB systems including IRS31-UMB, ARS31-UMB, WS600-UMB and R2S devices have been installed. The open UMB protocol is transmitted to the control center over the state-owned trunked radio network. As data transmission takes...
Weather monitoring network equipped with Lufft wind sensor VENTUS - Case Study
In 2010 we won a tender for 30 ultrasonic anemometers (as a part of meteorological weather stations). The National Weather Service of Mexico (CONAGUA) wanted to build weather stations in the southwest of Mexico (States of Chiapas and Tabasco). According to the customer, Ventus-UMB is a very robust, yet precise sensor with a very good price / performance ratio. Moreover, data transmission via the SDI-12 protocol is in the opinion of CONAGUA a great product advantage. So the customer decided to construct the...
The importance of groundwater monitoring
Groundwater monitoring is an essential element in any environmental information system. Based upon validated groundwater monitoring data, information is derived on which decisions can be made. Constant monitoring provides the necessary data input for your smart environment and is basically the basis of the decision making process concerning spatial planning and climate change adaptation. As in all cases the rule applies; one measurement is no measurement. When monitoring groundwater continuously you can: Monit...
Optimization of hydrometric monitoring network in urban drainage systems using information theory
Regular and continuous monitoring of urban runoff in both quality and quantity aspects is of great importance for controlling and managing surface runoff. Due to the considerable costs of establishing new gauges, optimization of the monitoring network is essential. This research proposes an approach for site selection of new discharge stations in urban areas, based on entropy theory in conjunction with multi-objective optimization tools and numerical models. The modeling framework provides an optimal trade-off...
Case study - New monitoring network for Scottish ports
In the past, the ferries operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to port to assess weather and tidal conditions would allow them to berth alongside the pier. In efforts to save time, fuel and costs, the Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which owns many of the ferries, ports and harbors in the region, decided to install 15 tide and weather stations, using OTT technology. These stations also provide passengers with earlier warnings of potential ferry cancellation, as well as protect...
