3 3rd GOES User’s Conference What can NESDIS do to improve? What new products and services should we plan for? What benefits do you derive from the data? What are your most important issues? How can we improve services and data? How can we best provide for customer feedback? How can future technology help? What new data acquisitions should be archived? What else needs to be addressed??
