Sensor Web Services are the most emerging distributed applications and have potential usage in a wide range of application domain. The semantic based sensor service discovery is proposed to enhance the discovery of sensor services. sensor web service generates a large number of heterogeneous raw data, so it’s a big challenge now-a-days to organize these raw data using various techniques so as to make the discovery and the selection easy and efficient. This paper extends the functionality of UDDI by introducing semantic description which is stored in the semantic repository at the same time the service gets registered. To provide the requested services a match maker is usually required. The match making algorithm in this paper is a generic semantic discovery algorithm which is not restricted only to the keyword based search rather is used to find the best possible services and the selection of the right service for the right user.
