The W3C Semantic Sensor Network Incubator group (the SSN-XG) produced an OWL~2 ontology to describe sensors and observations --- the SSN ontology. The SSN ontology can describe sensors in terms of capabilities, measurement processes, observations and deployments. This article describes the SSN ontology. It further gives an example and describes the use of the ontology in recent research projects.
