In this paper, we present an Open-Source web-based archiving system to organize and share wireless RF propagation measurement data, models, and simulation software in a centralized, standardized archive. This archiving system is based on Semantic Web ideas that will enable the wireless research community to easily share and access measured data and simulators provided by researchers across the globe. To begin development of the web-based archiving environment, we use a previously developed RF propagation simulator, SIRCIM, to represent the range of values, types of measurements, and file format types that would be needed to properly archive measurements from the research community at large. This paper also explores development issues and considerations required to build a Semantic Web on-line propagation channel measurement and modeling archiving system for global use.
