Registries: There are many models for the management and distribution of data. Data management may include the creation and maintenance of registries to house and distribute particular information types. Depending on the needs and interests of a particular program or consortia, ExchangeWell activity may include the development of industry and sector-level registries.
Sensors: In the broadest definition, a "sensor" is a device, module, machine, or subsystem whose purpose is to detect events or changes in its environment and send the information to other electronics, frequently a computer processor. A "sensor" is always "used" with other electronics. A number of ITC and ExchangeWell projects include the development and use of sensors and their related data assets.
