The Group on Earth Observations is a voluntary partnership of governments and international
organizations that is coordinating efforts to build a Global Earth Observation System of Systems
(GEOSS). It provides a framework within which these partners can coordinate their Earth observation strategies and investments, share their data, and develop new projects. In this way, GEO aims to ensure that decision makers have full access to the cross-cutting data and information that they need for addressing critical global issues.
