GEOSS Workshop XXV Perspectives on GEOSS Architecture: Principles and Implementation
Palacio de Congresos, Valencia, Spain 3-4 December 2008
This GEOSS workshop will focus on the system-of-systems architecture that guides the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) in developing GEOSS.
The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) aims to achieve comprehensive, coordinated and sustained observations of the Earth system. An initial operating capability of the GEOSS Common Infrastructure has recently been established. The workshop will review the architecture that guided the initial capability and will develop recommendations for future developments. The workshop will interest individuals and organizations from government, academia and industry sectors that seek to use GEOSS to increase access to Earth observations for their own use or for supporting their organizations system planning. Also, the workshop will interest individuals and organizations that seek to understand how their systems can contribute to GEOSS.
