The objective of this chapter is to present SensMap, a novel web-based interactive visualization, monitoring and managing tool which brings major advantages when compared with similar available solution. SensMap is built on the top of Xively web-cloud and it is not tied with any hardware platform. SensMap provides rich set of features, from real-time status observation of sensor devices to comprehensive historical data comparison among multiple devices.
