1 © GEO Secretariat The GEO WORK PLAN Draft Version 2 TOWARD CONVERGENCE Osamu Ochiai, GEO Secretariat CEOS/WGISS Meeting, Annapolis, USA, September 2006

2 © GEO Secretariat Task Convergence To bring multiple disciplines to activities organized within a task; To facilitate the merger of task activities where appropriate; To ensure ongoing, interdisciplinary linkages between related but separate tasks. New Proposals To merge previously disconnected tasks of the 2006 Work Plan to bring more coherence among related activities; To ensure completion of the two-year targets, as well as initiation of activities to meet the six and ten-year targets; To provide opportunity for new ideas to complement and refine the existing tasks and for new groups and communities to join GEO and contribute to GEOSS implementation. Overview of Concept

Continuing Tasks - CB-06-04GEO-NETCast Continue coordination with and receive input from user community Develop linkages to other dissemination methods as part of the overall GEOSS architecture Identify other infrastructure contributors to expand geographical coverage and build a global system Incorporate data and product contributions to serve all GEO societal benefit areas, which will likely require expanding bandwidth capacity Secure additional resources to evolve from the demonstration phase into a fully operational, global GEO-NETCast system Where infrastructure contributions are not yet in place, the strategy is to establish GEONETCast on a demonstration basis, then evolve to the full operational system covering both data exchange and dissemination. Proposals for Capacity Building (1)

16 © GEO Secretariat Proposals for Capacity Building (2) 2. New Tasks - CB-07-P1Capacity Building Strategy Implementation - CB-07-P2Capacity Building Indicators - CB-07-P3Building National Capacity

17 © GEO Secretariat Proposals for Architecture (1) 1. Continuing Tasks - AR-06-09High Resolution Multispectral Imager Continuity - AR-06-10GPM Mission Implementation - AR-06-11Radio Frequency Protection 2. New Tasks - AR-07-P1Interoperability arrangements for GEOSS (WGISS) Coordinate the core architectural principles in GEOSS, which have been initiated in AR-06-01, AR-06-02, AR and AR-06-04; Advocate commitments of new systems to the architecture of GEOSS, such as Sentinel Asia, GEONET, and WIS in the early operational phase of GEOSS, and ensure proper implementation; Test interoperability arrangements on newly contributed systems; Contribute additional architectural components to GEOSS.

18 © GEO Secretariat 2. New Tasks (Cont.) - AR-07-P2Interface Implementation for GEOSS (WGISS) With the objective to facilitate the implementation of information system interfaces, the "Clearinghouse task" (AR-06-05) and the "GEO Webportal task" (DA-06-07) are grouped. The prominent requirements for the Health, Ecosystem and Biodiversity SBAs will be addressed as a priority under this task. The User Interface Committee needs to participate with the Architecture and Data Committee on this task. Proposals for Architecture (2)

19 © GEO Secretariat Proposals for Architecture (3) 2. New Tasks (Cont.) - AR-07-P3Virtual Constellations Advocate virtual constellation space observations following the CEOS constellation concept for better temporal, spatial, and spectral resolution and related data management and dissemination. Space agencies and related organizations should consider the development of space and ground segments for such constellation concepts in the mission planning phase. Addressing objectives of all SBAs and filling gaps between them must be duly taken into account. This task would include a broad array of active and passive sensor systems operating over broad spectral, spatial and temporal coverage and resolutions, possibly considering specific cases such as constellations of SAR systems or micro satellites for a range of Earth observation applications. In addition, a robust verification and validation program including both spatial and radiometric elements is needed to ensure the accuracy and integration of a diverse collection of sensor systems. The UN registration of space objects in accordance with the Registration Convention (1975) shall be taken into account. This task includes relevant synergies with AR and DI

20 © GEO Secretariat Proposals for Architecture (4) 2. New Tasks (Cont.) - AR-07-P4Global geodetic reference frames Ensure the availability of accurate, homogenous, long-term, stable, global geodetic reference frames as a mandatory framework and the metrological basis for Earth observation.

21 © GEO Secretariat Proposals for Data Management (1) 1. Continuing Tasks - DA-06-01GEOSS Data Sharing Principles - DA-06-02GEOSS Quality Assurance Strategy - DA-06-04Data, Metadata and products Harmonisation - DA-06-05Guidance Document for Basic Geographic Data - DA-06-06Spatial Data Infrastructures (WGISS) - DA-06-09GEOSS Best Practices Registry 2. New Tasks - DA-07-P1Higher Level Data Product Tools Development of tools enabling establishment of higher level operational data products from different sources such as time series and global maps. This will enhance global monitoring and prediction capabilities.

22 © GEO Secretariat 2. New Tasks (Cont.) - DA-07-P2Global Land Cover (WGISS&WGCV) Utilizing global and regional high-resolution land cover datasets and earlier 1-km resolution land cover data sets, implement production of a high-resolution global land-cover change dataset and report. Initiate regular analysis and reporting on land cover change and promulgate the use of these products, especially in developing countries. - DA-07-P3DEM Interoperability (WGISS) Facilitate interoperability among Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data sets with the goal of producing a global, coordinated and integrated DEM. This DEM database should be embedded into a consistent, high accuracy, and long term stable geodetic reference frame for Earth observation. (Former AR reclassified under Data Management). Proposals for Data Management (2)

23 © GEO Secretariat Proposals for Data Management (3) 2. New Tasks (Cont.) - DA-07-P4Data Integration and Analysis System (WGISS) It is expected that there will be a large increase in the volume of Earth Observation data. In addition to distributed data archives and integration system, data management facilities will be used for diverse and large-volume Earth Observation data from inhomogeneous information sources in cooperation with existing data centres. This task is to coordinate data management approaches that encompass a broad perspective of the observation data life cycle, from input through processing, achieving, and dissemination, including reprocessing, analysis and visualization of large volumes and diverse type of data.
