The Snout software to be prepared must acquire sensor measurements, displayed measurements in real time on LEDs, acquire its GPS location and record all this data together with a timestamp for future use. The aim of this is to use the acquired measurements later by transfering them to geo-centric web service such as google map to give users a visual view of the sensor measurements. This software requirement specification document only addresses the software requirments for the application to be run on the sensing platform. This document does not detail the requirements for presentation of the data on geo-centric web services.

The software on the sensing device must start running upon switching on the device, as the device does not have other means for the novice user to interact with it.
