Description Internet of Things is a phenomenon originating from industry. It offer several benefits also for the geospatial community, such as appropriate collection and transmission of field-based sensor information. In addition, geospatial techniques are strong in analysis and visualization capabilities. Bridging Internet of Things and geospatial techniques opens a way to build advanced (Web) GIS applications with real-time data at low costs. This paper therefore briefly describes the processes that are preceding the design of a sensor monitoring network in cooperation with GIS (Geographic Information System) and IoT (Internet of Things). It comprises the basics of information transfer from sensor device to a backend system (GIS). The LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) is used for the data transmission from an IoT device to up to few kilometres distant Internet source. MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) technology was used to exchange information between heterogeneous systems over the Internet.
