We are excited to share this issue of Connections Magazine,
the publication produced by Project Haystack. Project Haystack is an open source initiative to streamline working with data from the Internet of Things. The initiative standardizes semantic data models and web services with the goal of making it easier to unlock value from the vast quantity of data being generated by the smart devices that permeate homes, buildings, factories, and cities. BuildingFit has been an active member of the Project Haystack community since its inception!
Jay Herron was a contributor to the publication with the
article, “OpenStreetMap: A Tagging Comparison With Haystack” on page 18. Herron discusses ideas to consider in usage patterns and directing future growth of the tagging standard. Herron’s article also includes the Statue of Liberty as an OpenStreetMap tagging example. Definitely worth a read!
Jay Herron is a Software Engineer and a SkySpark Essentials Certified Instructor for BuildingFit. He is an active contributor to Project Haystack and leads the AHU Working Group.
In addition, as a new Project Haystack associate member,
the Connections Magazine also includes a BuildingFit profile piece on page 36! A big thanks to Jake MacArthur for his contribution!
Here’s a sneak peak of the profile:
“The newest member of Project Haystack has been deploying analytics and advance energy management strategies across millions of square feet of facilities for decades. They are using Haystack semantic tagging and the REST API on a daily basis.”
