About the workshop
Join us from 2-4 May 2018 at the European Space Agency in Frascati, Italy, as we bring together Earth observation data providers and users to share knowledge and best practices in the management and use of Earth observation data, while working together to enhance together the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The 3rd GEO Data Providers Workshop will feature 3 days of dynamic sessions, along with a 2 day hackathon, aimed at connecting data providers and users as part of the GEOSS Platform community. The 2 day hackathon will take place in two parallel sessions, one at ESA in Frascati, Italy and one at ESA ECSAT in Didcot, UK.
In alignment with The Group on Earth Observations’ 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, and 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 latest and upcoming upgrades and functionalities of the GEOSS Platform, and have the opportunity to communicate their use cases and needs to a wide range of data providers and the GEOSS Platform team.
