Presentation Abstract:
On 22 January, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Monitoring and 
Evaluation Working Group launched the planned mid-term evaluation of the 
Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). Over the coming 
months an evaluation team will examine the progress that has been made 
toward achieving the strategic goals that are intended to achieve the 
GEOSS Vision. In particular, the evaluation will look at the foundation 
that has been laid for GEOSS as well as progress along the path to 
implementing GEOSS and the impacts of GEOSS in the Earth observing 
Direct feedback from the Earth observation community is necessary to 
complete this evaluation. The evaluation team is conducting a survey, 
interviews, and reaching out to participants to locate other documents 
and reviews of GEOSS and its components. We would like to invite the 
members of ESIP to contribute to the evaluation however they can but 
especially by responding to the survey and spreading awareness of the 
evaluation to their colleagues.
The survey is available online until the end of March and members of the 
Team are working to make contact with and collect feedback directly from 
the users of GEOSS on a short timeline. If you know of research 
literature, white papers, or other items such as evaluations of GEOSS 
that could be helpful to the team, or if you have further questions, we 
would be happy to hear from you. To follow up, please contact Team 
member John Adamec by email at john.adamec at noaa.gov.
