35ConclusionThe newly developed GOCI is demonstrating quite decent performances in orbit, both in radiometric and geometric aspects.It is anticipated that such GOCI image data will bring a new dimension to the geostationary remote sensing and in the related scientific research fields.More in-depth review, thorough analysis and active iteration are desired to define the requirement specification for the next generation GOCI (‘GOCI-2’).It is hoped that GOCI will further be expanded in terms of its design, development, operation and applications, into the next generation of geostationary remote sensing satellites.
