A large volume of environmental observation data is being generated as a result of the observation of many properties at the Earth surface. In parallel, there exists a clear interest in accessing data from different data providers related to the same property, in order to solve concrete problems. Based on such fact, there is also an increasing interest in publishing the above data through open interfaces in the scope of Spatial Data Infraestructures. There have been important advances in the definition of open standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) that enable interoperable access to sensor data. Among the proposed interfaces, the Sensor Observation Service (SOS) is having an important impact. We have realized that currently there is no available solution to provide integrated access to various data sources through a SOS interface. This problem shows up two main facets. On the one hand, the heterogeneity among different data sources has to be solved. On the other hand, semantic conflicts that arise during the integration process must also resolved with the help of relevant domain expert knowledge. To solve the problems, the main goal of this thesis is to design and develop a semantic data mediation framework to access any kind of environmental observation dataset, including both relational data sources and multidimensional arrays.
