EMISSARY is a field-portable interface for advanced data visualization, modelling, and data exploration of sensor micronets. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) are combined to expand our understanding of data collected from sensors in the field. EMISSARY supplies real-time access to current and archived data and data models. It also provides field guidance and facilitates the process of sensor configuration, calibration, testing and debugging. It provides researchers with the capability to produce models using past and real-time data for hypothesis testing and experiment planning.
