Sensor manufacturers can take content out of their manuals into actionable, standards-based content by describing each sensor model in SensorML. These documents must also include references to registered vocabularies describing terms included in the documents. The SensorML model description documents are to be owned and managed by the sensor manufacturer and should be registered with a repository to enable access via an URL. The manufacturer can also create a SensorML document identifying a particular sensor, when distributed to an owner. The manufacturer is responsible for creating the Instance SensorML (and the associated URN) but transfers management of the document to the sensor owner. This document references the URL (HTTP UUID) of the sensor model and inherits descriptors as a typeOf the sensor model
