This paper addresses the sensor selection problem associated with monitoring spatial phenomena, where a subset of k sensor measurements from among a set of n potential sensor measurements is to be chosen such that the root mean square prediction error is minimised. It is proposed that the spatial phenomena to be monitored is modelled using a Gaussian Process and a simulated annealing based approximately heuristic algorithm is used to solve the resulting minimisation problem. The algorithm is shown to be computationally efficient and is illustrated using both indoor and outdoor environment monitoring scenarios. It is shown that, although the proposed algorithm is not guaranteed to find the optimum, it always provides accurate solutions for broad range real-world and computer generated datasets.
