Dear Colleagues,
I write to announce the launch of the first Group on Earth Observations GEO Appathon 2014 - an exciting new worldwide data science competition to be launched on 7 May 2014. See www.geoappathon.org
The GEO Appathon is a global applications (App) development competition that aims to develop new, exciting and - most importantly - useful Apps using Earth observation data from the open and expansive Earth Observation data sets in the GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI). See www.geoportal.org 
The Appathon kicks off on 7 May 2014 and runs until 31 August 2014. Participation is open to any non-commercial entity, individual or team from any background in any country. Apps can be created for any of the main operating systems, and can be designed for any type of portable device. All Apps will be judged and the top three winners will receive a cash prize and a year-long GEO network endorsement and publicity for the App. 
Visit our GEO Appathon website (www.geoappathon.org) for more rules, details of how to register and information about how you can help us unleash the power of Earth observation data.
I invite you to share this email broadly across your organizations and networks, and with anyone who has a passion for building apps, or an interest in creative solutions that can make a difference. 
We encourage students, scientists and developers to join us and create the next game-changing solution using Earth observation data.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Dan Williams at: dan at geoappathon.org.

Best regards,

Barbara Ryan
