What do we learn from our sensors?

The engineering mind might answer the above question with details on what each specific sensor is tuned to measure along with figures from specification sheets with limits, resolution, response time and other characteristics. The more artistic mind, say that of a social scientist or storyteller, might speak to the data patterns and the insight that
