The Group on Earth Observation (GEO) has launched the sixth and summative evaluation of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) 2005 – 2015.

  • Evaluation Scope: Entire period of the first 10-Year Implementation Plan and full range of Societal Benefit Areas (Agriculture, Biodiversity, Climate, Disasters, Ecosystems, Energy, Health, Water, & Weather) and Transverse Areas (Architecture, Capacity Building, Science and Technology, & User Engagement).
  • Strategy: Build on prior evaluations through synthesis of previous findings to guide further data collection and new analysis.
  • Desired Outcome: Forward-looking recommendations applicable to the next implementation plan rather than advice specific to the current (2005-2015) documents.
