Note that the GEOSS
is a portal or gateway for finding relevant geographic data and services rather than a repository of geographic data itself.
The ultimate goal of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), which coordinates GEOSS
, is to benefit the quality of life of people around the world, advancing global sustainability, and preserving the planet.
members often describe the systems as "research stovepipes," with limited flexibility and focused application to particular needs.
It follows a GEOSS
compatible data-broker approach and adopts international standards.
is an internet-based platform that allows users of Earth observation data to access, search, and use the data, information, tools, and services for their needs.
The IEEE GEOSS
Forum XLIV will be held on Monday as a full-day workshop dedicated to bringing earth observation and IEEE communications experts together in an effort to enhance the implementation of the latest sensor network, modeling and signal process technologies in rural areas.
NASA's Earth Science Gateway: A platform for interoperable services in support of the GEOSS
The Alliance is releasing a policy statement in concert with the International Astronautical Congress on the value of engaging with the private sector for GEOSS
The climate change community has much to gain from using the GEOSS
Further, all adequate channels will be used for strong dissemination & exploitation, specifically: writing a monograph explaining OGC Big Geo Data standards; scientific publications & active conference organization; Earth science data user workshops for each domain addressed; actively contributing technology & experience to GEO / GEOSS
and further bodies; establish standardized Big Geo Data benchmark and run it against EarthServer-2 and further relevant systems.
At the conference, Northrop Grumman will demonstrate, using TouchTable technology, how a GEOSS
can be created by interconnecting a diverse array of scientific data from instruments and systems such as NPOESS for monitoring and forecasting changes in the global environment.
The integration processes, for national applications and GEOSS
applications, are illustrated in Figure 1:
