Abstract. In recent years, the multi-scale comprehensive perception is central to smart city development. We propose an "adaptor" for geospatial sensor web as an integrated sensory system that can integrate access to geodetic equipment based on the Internet of Things technology with multiple platforms and protocols. At the same time, the acquisition, fusion, and processing of sensory resources can perform. The geospatial adaptor can access and process sensors of different IoT protocols to different conditions simultaneously. Grace to this geospatial adaptor, a considerable number of the sensor based on IoT in the community, can achieve distributed access, ensuring the better robustness of the geospatial sensor web. This paper describes the system architecture of the geospatial sensor web adapter. Furthermore, from the perspective of protocol access, it introduces the access capabilities of geospatial sensor web adapter to the standard IoT interface protocols. By comparing the geospatial sensor web adapter with traditional observation methods by experiments and acquisition of test data. The results show that the geospatial sensor web adapter can achieve powerful access capabilities and network stability, and it is a better solution for heterogeneous sensing platform access in smart cities.
