EU survey on Earth observation in a global context: A public consultation on possible EU actions in relation to global coordination of Earth observations via the Group on Earth Observations (GEO)
Åpen konsultasjon igangsatt av Kommisjonen 26.01.2015
BAKGRUNN (fra Kommisjonens høringsnettside, engelsk utgave)
This survey builds on consultations conducted by the European Commission in 2013 and 2014 with the aim to provide the state of play regarding the implementation of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) during the last ten years. As an outcome of these previous consultations (see reference documents accessible from this survey), several preliminary issues and possible actions at EU level have been identified in view of accelerating the evolution of the GEOSS into a system that could effectively contribute to EU policies, generate business opportunities for the EU industry and bring benefits to European society as a whole.
Through this EU public consultation, the European Commission is actively seeking contributions by all those in Europe interested in the global context of Earth observation in order to help:
• estimate general awareness of and stance on Earth observations (EO), GEO and GEOSS;
• appreciate how to maximize EU benefits from an increased Earth observation coordination through GEO;
• collect views on a set of possible actions at EU level in the field of global Earth observation and GEO.
