Thanks @Sara,
I was aware of the floating sensors, I didn’t know they connected to a GIS and the company listed doesn’t seem to exist anymore. That was a very cool project though, do you have more information?

The trajectory approach you explain above appears indeed a little “cludgey”, I appreciate your explanation but was wondering why this use case is so unusual, I had conversations with another GIS company about this who said the same thing. Site-centric is of course useful if the sensor remains immobile but many air quality sensors now are mounted on cars/busses/bikes and hence move. Am I the only one who would like that feature?

Thanks again, really appreciate what you guys do!
