3. Interoperability Standards Outreach Package Development – Next Steps!
(Karl to lead)
On 22 January, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Monitoring and
Evaluation Working Group launched the planned mid-term evaluation of the
Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). Over the coming
months an evaluation team will examine the progress that has been made
toward achieving the strategic goals that are intended to achieve the
GEOSS Vision. In particular, the evaluation will look at the foundation
that has been laid for GEOSS as well as progress along the path to
implementing GEOSS and the impacts of GEOSS in the Earth observing
Direct feedback from the Earth observation community is necessary to
complete this evaluation. The evaluation team is conducting a survey,
interviews, and reaching out to participants to locate other documents
and reviews of GEOSS and its components. We would like to invite the
members of ESIP to contribute to the evaluation however they can but
especially by responding to the survey and spreading awareness of the
evaluation to their colleagues.
The survey is available online until the end of March and members of the
Team are working to make contact with and collect feedback directly from
the users of GEOSS on a short timeline. If you know of research
literature, white papers, or other items such as evaluations of GEOSS
that could be helpful to the team, or if you have further questions, we
would be happy to hear from you. To follow up, please contact Team
member John Adamec by email at john.adamec at noaa.gov.
