Honey bees have throughout history been a keystone species, pollinating an estimated 70 percent of all plants and underpinning some 30 percent of the global food supply. Because the viability of beehives is a critical predictor of the planet’s future health and agricultural sustainability, reports of a precipitous decline in the number of colonies around the world have stirred considerable alarm. Since most of the prior contributions are focusing on data gathering, the approach to focus on the user’s needs is central to take next steps in the field of using sensors for Beekeeping. Beekeepers can be divided into beekeepers having bees as a hobbies and beekeepers that are professional, making a living of the beekeeping. Visualization and availability of data are key questions for user friendliness. Since there are no standards for measurement data from beehives, there are different manufacturers/contributors that have their own system. If a standard format would be available, it would make it easier to interconnect different devices for visualization in single user interface. If data is available as streams in standardized application program interface (API) a user can use whatever solution found for visualization. The majorities of beekeepers that nonprofessional, they will probably want to have the “relation to their bees”, using too much technology is probably wanted, like having robots doing the actual beekeeping work.

Keywords : Application Program Interface (API).
