Data Providers Workshop – GEO-XIII Plenary

Co-convened by the ICSU World Data System, the 1st Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Data Providers Workshop will be held prior the GEO-XIII Plenary in St. Petersburg, with the goals of establishing a two-way dialogue with data providers to improve the discoverability, accessibility, and usability of Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) resources.

The agenda includes WDS-related presentations on the benefits of certification to data providers by both Vasily Kopylov, a former WDS Scientific Committee member and Director of the Russian Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information (host of WDS Regular Members: WDC - Meteorology, Obninsk and WDC - Oceanography, Obninsk), and Natalia Sergeyeva who is the Director of WDC - Solar-Terrestrial Physics, Moscow and WDC - Solid Earth Physics, Moscow.

This side event will help the GEO community to define its priorities and to shape the agenda of a more comprehensive event planned in early 2017, and all data providers already contributing to GEOSS—as well as new data providers, flagships and initiatives, and users—are invited to the Workshop, and are actively encouraged to participate to ensure that its key objectives are met.
