Microsoft Research RFP – SensorMap: Browsing the Physical World in Real-Time

I just received a new Research RFP opportunity from Microsoft Research.

Microsoft Research (External Research & Programs department) is pleased to announce a new worldwide sensornet research Request For Proposals (RFP).

“SensorMap: Browsing the Physical World in Real-Time”

For full details, guidelines, eligibility and submission instructions, please visit:


We envision publishing and querying real-time data (e.g., from sensors) over geo-centric web interfaces.

The SensorMap project ( — previously known as SenseWeb) at Microsoft Research aims to address the various challenges involved by providing a common platform and set of tools for data owners to easily publish data and for users to make useful queries of the live data sources.

With the publication of this RFP, the SensorMap platform is being made available to researchers worldwide to publish their sensor data, which will raise the profile and accessibility of their research, and will help to evolve the platform’s capabilities according to the research requirements of the sensing community at large.


The total amount available under the RFP is US$700,000. Microsoft Research anticipates making approximately 10 project awards averaging US$50,000, with a maximum of US$70,000 for any single award.
