Subject: OSTP Releases National Strategy for Civil Earth Observations

I am pleased to announce that today, OSTP released the National Strategy 
for Civil Earth Observations (EO Strategy), the primary output of the 
2011-2012 National Earth Observations Task Force.  You may find the 
report and blog post here:


The EO Strategy provides guidance for two important new processes for 
our community: the civil Earth observation assessment (EOA) and the new 
Big Earth Data Initiative (BEDI).  Both activities, will be overseen by 
the newly re-chartered U.S. Group on Earth Observations (USGEO) 
Subcommittee of  CENRS, and integrated with our 7-year international 
collaboration through the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations
