Hi everyone,

This is an issue not to overlook.

In order to decide up to what extent we should cover in our ontologies 
other subdomains (e.g., observation), we should have clearly identified 
the intended users and uses of the ontology that we are developing.

In the wiki there is a collection of use cases:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ssn/wiki/Use_cases
but I don't have a clear idea of whether we need to model in the 
ontology information to support some tasks related to sensor networks 
(e.g., Routing, Data aggregation, Security, Quality of Service, etc.).

I'd appreciate if someone could provide some remarks about the scope of 
the ontology in the wiki (if someone has a clear idea of it).

Kind regards,
