This document on best practices for sensor networks and sensor data management provides information for establishing and managing a fixed environmental sensor network for on or near surface point measurements with the purpose of long-term or “permanent” environmental data acquisition. It does not cover remotely sensed data (satellite imagery, aerial photography, etc.), although a few marginal cases where this distinction is not entirely clear are discussed, e.g., phenology and animal behavior webcams. The best practices covered in this document may not all apply to temporary or transitory sensing efforts such as distributed “citizen science” initiatives, which do not focus on building infrastructure. Furthermore, it is assumed that the scientific goals for establishing a sensor network are thought out and discussed with all members of the team responsible for establishing and maintaining the sensor network. i.e., appropriateness of certain sensors or installations to answer specific questions are not discussed. Information is provided here for various stages of establishing and maintaining an environmental sensor network: planning a completely new system, upgrading an existing system, improving streaming data management, and archiving data.

Welcome to the Environmental Sensing Cluster.

Working Group Scope

Our working group is centered on developing and promoting best practices for environmental sensor networks and sensor data management.


We are a community of science-driven practitioners that work across the domains of terrestrial in-situ observation, long term monitoring, QA and QC, sensor engineering, field deployment/design, data networking, edge computing, power systems, and software infrastructure.

We collaborate with (but do not focus on) practices around remotely sensed data (satellite imagery, drone surveys, aerial photography, etc.).

Get Involved

Our monthly Zoom calls are attended by various cluster members and contributors, representing the community across NSF-LTER, USGS, EPA, NEON, CZO, NASA, as well as academic scientists, private industry, and NGO's. We feature a combination of guest speakers, group discussion, and working sessions. All are welcome to attend!


We also host sessions at annual ESIP meetings, AGU, and more - so watch for opportunities to attend or submit an abstract.
