1 The GEO Work Plan * 2010 Update (GEO-VI) * New Online Management System Alexia Massacand (Work Plan Coordinator) Rik Baeyens (IT Manager)

2 GEO Group on Earth Observations GEOSS Global Earth Observation System of Systems

3 GEO is an Intergovernmental Group –79 Nations –European Commission –56 Participating Organizations With a Single Objective: GEOSS –To establish a global, coordinated, comprehensive and sustained system of Earth observation systems

4 GEOSS Components


6 GEO Portal (ESRI, Compusult, ESA)

7 Work Plan

8 GEO Work Plan – What is it? Agreed framework for implementing the GEOSS 10-Year Implementation Plan ( ) Set of practical Tasks carried out by various GEO Members and Participating Organizations Living Document – Annually updated

9 GEO Work Plan History 2009 WP WP WP Cape Town Summit

10 Work Plan – How did it come about? Followed recommendations from GEO-IV Plenary & Cape Town Ministerial Summit Built upon Work Plan Driven by 6- and 10-year GEOSS Targets Included proposals & comments made by GEO community and Committees

11 Work Plan (1) Two-part structure (2) Overarching Tasks (3) « User-Driven » Approach


13 (2) Overarching Tasks 44 overarching Tasks that help: Promote synergies & cross-fertilization Move Work Plan to more strategic level Highlight key lines of GEOSS implementation

14 44 overarching Tasks including… Part 1 : BUILDING AN INTEGRATED GEOSS 1.1ARCHITECTURE AR-09-01: GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI) AR-09-02: Interoperable Systems for GEOSS AR-09-03: Advocating for Sustained Observing Systems AR-09-04: Dissemination and Distribution Networks AR-06-11: Radio Frequency Protection 1.2DATA MANAGEMENT DA-06-01: GEOSS Data Sharing Principles DA-09-01: Data Management DA-09-02: Data Integration and Analysis DA-09-03: Global Data Sets 1.3CAPACITY BUILDING CB-09-01: Resource Mobilization CB-09-02: Building Individual Capacity in Earth Observations CB-09-03: Building Institutional Capacity to Use Earth Observations CB-09-04: Capacity Building Needs/Gap Assessment CB-09-05: Infrastructure Development and Technology Transfer CB-10-01: Building Capacity through Outreach and Awareness Raising 1.4SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ST-09-01: Catalyzing R&D Funding for GEOSS ST-09-02: Promoting Awareness and Benefits of GEO in the S&T Community 1.5USER ENGAGEMENT US-09-01: User Engagement US-09-02: Socio-Economic Indicators US-09-03: Cross-cutting Products and Services

17 2010 Update ?

18 Technical & official comments received from GEO community No major change but rather a series of adjustments Process – Work Plan Update

19 5 New Sub-tasks Created: * Global Geodetic Observing System (AR-09-03e) * Long-Term Preservation of EO Data (DA-09-01c) * Data Democracy (CB-09-05e) * Atlas of our Changing Environment (CB-10-01d) * Key Observations for Climate (CL-09-02a) Changes – Work Plan Update

20 5 Existing Sub-tasks Moved Unchanged: * CB-09-02e Earth Observation Game for Youth moved to CB-10-01a * CB-09-03c Building Capacity for Non-technical Decision-makers moved to CB-10-01b * CB-09-04c User Oriented Workshops for GEOSS Outreach moved to CB-10-01c * US-09-03b Forest Mapping and Change Monitoring moved to EC-09-01e (Ecosystems) * US-09-03c Global Soil Data moved to DA-09-03e Changes – Work Plan Update

21 * Refined Task descriptions * New Task Leads and Points of Contact Following Members and Participating Organizations requests Changes – Work Plan Update

22 * Updated Guide to Work Plan Management Description of: - Steps required for becoming engaged with Work Plan Tasks - Overarching Task Management - Role of Committees Changes – Work Plan Update

23 * Available on-line ( * New Work Plan Information Management System (incl. Task Sheets etc) * Launched on 10 December 2009 * To be expanded 2010 Work Plan Update
