This thesis presents the Ubicorder. The Ubicorder is a location and orientation aware sensor network browsing and interactive visualization system together with in-situ event denition and identification (termed EDITY). The mobile browser allows real-time viewing of sensor network data, and enables the user to easily establish correlation between physically observed phenomena and their sensor signature. Based on the observed correlations, events are triggered every time a given set of sensor-value conditions are satised. Event rules can then be recursively combined to detect complex physical phenomena. Through a first-use user study, we evaluate the system for its usefulness and usability.
