GEOSS and the GEO WEB Portal
Transcript of GEOSS and the GEO WEB Portal
ystems is a public infrastructure helping connect a diverse and growing array of earth observation and information systems for monitoring and forecasting changes in the global environment in many areas involving societal benefits like climate variability and change, energy management, agriculture, biodiversity, human health and epidemiology, weather forecasting and water management
Whether it is remotely sensed, in-situ, ocean-based, or surface-based, earth observation (EO) data is essential for making informed public policy decisions
Models, analysis tools, information products and services, all add value to EO data and it is usually these value-added products and services that environmental managers, public policy officials and ultimately ministers recognise and need
A set of core components and functions, known as the
nfrastructure, were designed and deployed to:
Allow GEOSS resources to be easily discovered and accessed;
Improve interoperability for existing and future observation systems;
Build an Open Infrastructure in accordance with the GEOSS Data Sharing Principles.
GEOSS and the GCI
bservations is coordinating efforts to build GEOSS
89 governments and 67 participating organisations are coming together to share data across these nine SBAs and to further advance broad open data policies for all publically funded EO data
The GEO Web Portal provides an entry point for GEOSS users to access Earth Observation information and services.
It connects to a system of existing portals and data, addressing the GEO SBAs globally, while also providing national and regional information to enhance Data Discovery and retrieval.
The GEO Web Portal interfaces GEOSS data via the Discovery and Access Broker component that searches a number of catalogues harvested by the Clearinghouse component and also directly search other catalogues either directly or via Integrated/Federated EO Discovery/Access Systems like GENESI, FedEO and CWIC.
