The goal of this task is to assess the socioeconomic benefits and impacts of information on individual and societal decisions. The impacts of data, information and applications on decisions need to be better understood intuitively and via quantitative assessments. The primary focus of the task will be to identify methods, create use cases/assessments, develop examples that can be broadly understood and conduct training. The work will build upon prior developments carried out by JRC in support of INSPIRE, the efforts supporting NASA Earth Science applications, the USGS economic analyses and case studies that are currently under examination. We anticipate that this multi-year effort will support a range of GEO activities including GEO Flagships and other GEO Initiatives.
