Roles in the Data Acquisition Community 

The main objectives objective of the data acquisition community is to bring measurements into the system. Consider a typical data acquisition scenario: A measurement and monitoring model is designed by designers based on the requirements of environmental scientists. Such a design decides what data is to be collected and what metadata is to be associated with it, e.g., experimental information and instrument conditions. Technicians configure and calibrate a sensor or a sensor network to satisfy the experiment specifications. In the case where human sensors are to be used, observers or measurers input the measures to the system, e.g., by using mobile devices. Data collectors interact with a data acquisition subsystem to prepare the data or control the flow of data in order to automatically collect and transmit the data.
