The popularity of Internet-enabled mobile technology allows people to participate in many data gathering tasks such as making scientific observation, responding to regional polls, and collecting location-specific information such as parking availability and road conditions. We describe initial work on a prototype and framework to support applications requiring collaborative data gathering and an awareness of a mobile device user's context. The framework uses Semantic Web languages to represent and reason about mobile sensor data, user context, and user preferences.
