About the workshop
Join us from 20-23 March 2018 at the European Space Agency in Frascati, Italy, as we bring together data providers and users to share knowledge and best practices in the management and use of Earth observation data, while working together to enhance the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The 3rd GEO Data Providers Workshop will feature 3 days of dynamic sessions, along with a day and a half hackathon, aimed at connecting data providers and users as part of the GEOSS Platform community.
In alignment with GEO’s vision to realize a future where decisions and actions, for the benefit of humankind, are informed by coordinated, comprehensive and sustained Earth observation information and services, this workshop will provide a space to share experiences and knowledge that can improve the ways in which data is managed, communicated, disseminated and used.
Focus areas include:
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Data providers and users contributing to or benefiting from Earth observations are invited to attend the Workshop. Attendees will have the opportunity to network and engage with other providers and users, share their needs and services, and exchange ideas for collaboration.
New and registered GEO Data Providers will have the opportunity to present their data via the GEOSS Platform, to hear from and connect with data users to better understand their needs.
They will learn about the latest and upcoming developments in the GEOSS Platform, including statistics monitoring, yellow pages, registration process, views, metadata requirements, sorting, and status checker.
Data users will learn about the latest and planned upgrades and functionalities of the GEOSS Platform. They will also have the opportunity to communicate their requirements to a wide range of data providers and the GEOSS Platform team.
