Making citizen science sensor platforms and their measured data accessible to GIS users can be a challenging task. Data has to be discovered, downloaded, and converted before adding it to a GIS project. To facilitate integration and enhance interoperability between sensor platforms and GIS, this work proposes a method for accessing sensor platforms directly through GIS. Our approach implements selected parts of the OGC GeoServices REST API directly on a sensor platform, thus making it a first class node on the Internet of Things. Users can get a live view of what is measured in the field in their GIS.
