Abstract

Real-time environment monitoring and analysis is an important research area of Internet of Things (IoT). Understanding the behavior of the complex ecosystem requires analysis of detailed observations of an environment over a range of different conditions. One such example in urban areas includes the study of tree canopy cover over the microclimate environment using heterogeneous sensor data. There are several challenges that need to be addressed, such as obtaining reliable and detailed observations over monitoring area, detecting unusual events from data, and visualizing events in real-time in a way that is easily understandable by the end users (e.g., city councils). In this regard, we prop..
