IN-04: GEOSS Communication Networks Description: Enhance timely and reliable access to, and delivery of, Earth observation and information from all Societal Benefit Areas. In particular, address access issues in developing countries. Consider the collection of satellite and in-situ data, the transfer of data and products between relevant agencies, and the dissemination of data and products to users. Make use of relevant technology including the Internet, wireless communication (fixed and mobile) networks (e.g. satellite, cellular, WiFi, WIMAX), broadband land connections, and satellite-based direct-broadcast systems independent from ground-based telecommunications infrastructures.
C1: Worldwide Communication Network of Networks Priority Actions: Expand GEOSS' worldwide network capability and capacity to: (i) g ather Earth observation data from sensors and instruments via mobile and fixed devices, and (ii) for data and information dissemination, utilizing interconnected networks based on satellite, fixed land- based and mobile/wireless communication. Provide capabilities such as user access and data exchange and dissemination services in response to users’ and providers’ needs Establish methods for network access to a wide range of existing and newly developed sensors and instruments using automated sensor discovery, access, data handling and processing, data quality and sustainability, metadata annotation and support for calibration Explore integration of sensor web, model web, cloud computing and “big data analytics” technologies, with an emphasis on predictive analytics Establish a set of demonstrators as well as a framework for demonstrators that will include data collection and access in different regions, including under-served regions (e.g. through mobile phone networks, Internet of Things technology, all sorts of wired/wireless links, mesh networks, satellite networks, etc.) Build upon and integrate existing systems and ensure operational exchange of data, information and warnings in Societal Benefit Areas (SBA).
